About this product
- DescriptionLachlan MacKinn's fourth collection opens with a gathering of lyrics and descriptive poems: observing rites of passage (elegies, wedding poems), offering nuanced accounts of places and their patchwork afterlives (the Midlands, a Suffolk sketchbook), or meditations on historical figures introspectively at odds with their time (King Canute, Edward Thomas). This preoccupation with contingency - personal and historical - opens onto The Book of Emma : a long poem of fifty-four sections, written mostly in prose, which address a lost friend and contemporary in terms which seem laconically factual, but which draw their power from archaic conventions (Egyptian, Celtic) of talking to the dead.
- Author BiographyLachlan Mackinnon was born in 1956 and educated at Charterhouse and Christ Church, Oxford. He teaches at Winchester College. He is the author of two critical studies and a biography; he has reviewed regularly for the national press. Small Hours is his fourth collection of poems.
