Grandiloquent Wretches

A4 chapbook which bases itself loosely on the Welsh metrical tradition. I know absolutely nothing about that, but the footnotes to the poems astonish me with the luminosity they grant the reference.

For me – and for sure I don’t speak for anyone else – the collection lacks joy, so that their, very taut, meanings can appear too heavy or too light depending on how you read, and I cannot reasonably connect the poems together.

But the collection has a genuine worth.
