There is an Anger That Moves, Paperback / softback Book

There is an Anger That Moves Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The six sequences of "There Is an Anger that Moves" travel from Jamaica to England and back.

A mother's heart is broken; men fall in love secretly; people dance until they die.

Religion haunts these disbelieving poems which move sometimes to the measure of a hymn, sometimes to the cadence of a Baptist sermon.

Each swells with its own conviction, even when that conviction is doubt.

Miller makes us believe in the power of unexpected things: the colour orange, broken coffins, ice cream - and in the transforming power of poetry.

From this book, Kei Miller emerges as one of the most compelling and subtle new voices from the Caribbean.
