Both human and humane, Oliver Dixon's debut collection of poetry maps a city and its inhabitants - from starlings and plane trees to a Stockhausen-listening street cleaner. But Human Form is as much a reflection on an interior world on the cusp of change.
This book is a search for form, of modes of utterance, combining elegantly crafted lyrics with dense blocks of prose poetry and fractured texts.
Dixon is a poet open to invention and re-invention: reflective yet lively, philosophical yet grounded, a brilliant observer of people, place and moments of uncertainty coalescing into meaning.
