Selected Poems, Paperback / softback Book

Description

Paul Farley is now widely recognized as one of the leading English poets writing today.

Selected Poems takes stock of a singular talent of great formal gifts: for readers new to his work, this is an ideal and generous introduction, drawing on four collections from his acclaimed debut The Boy from the Chemist is Here to See You to his most recent, The Dark Film.

Farley is a cultural archivist, a nostalgist of the darkest and most unsettling kind, and a meticulous curator of those fleeting details which define our lives and times most poignantly: he already reads like one of the poets by whom future generations will know us best.

His Selected Poems is a marvellous introduction to one of poetry's most capacious and eclectic imaginations.
