Sea Level, which draws on the landscape of Yorkshire and the East riding, is bolder than A Cold Spell, both technically formal and lightly experimental. These are poems haunted by the sea which, everywhere, worries at the edges of what we can know, or save. Tense, sinewy and musical, they probe the levels of what poetry might say.
