Description:
In his first full-length collection for nearly 30 years, 'Shingle Street' sees a return to the form with which Blake Morrison started his career. Set along the Suffolk coast, the opening poems address a receding world - an eroding landscape, 'abashed by the ocean's passion'. But coastal life gives way to other, more dangerous, vistas: a wave unleashes a flood-tide of terror; a sequence of topical poems lays bare pressing political issues; while elsewhere portraits of the past bring forth the dear and the departed. Beneath the surface of this collection is an undertow of loss: a piercing examination of change amid a shifting world.
