Selected Poems Summary

Selected Poems by Roger Garfitt

This "Selected Poems" reveals the individual character of each poem and sequence "written only when the internal pressure demands and the slow pace of craft allows". Hard-won, not austere, the poems are marked by tenderness and passion; quiet humour, not irony, runs through them. The extended extracts from the poet's journals evoke life in Bogota, Colombia, during the Drug War, and provide a moving account of the poet's return to landscapes he shared with his late wife, the poet Frances Horovitz. The book ends with two new sequences: "Border Songs", written to be engraved on glass, and "In All My Holy Mountain", a collaboration with jazz composer, Nikki Iles.
