In this new collection Malcolm Carson further explores the relationship between the individual and his landscape, themes that emerged powerfully in his first full collection Breccia. Here a trek to Nepal provides the background for the title sequence and is followed by more of the compelling Edgar poems that first appeared in Breccia.

“Malcolm Carson’s Breccia is a find…The voice is strong, the language sensuously enacts what is described…I was particularly attracted to the poems in the third section of the book, poems about the Cumbrian fells, which strongly reminded me of the poetry of Norman Nicholson. A deep sense of geological time as a context in which to understand human time is present in both poets, and Nicholson would, I’m certain, have admired these poems as much as I do…this is very much my kind of book. Anyone who likes reading fine poems will think so too.”

Matt Simpson in Stride Magazine

“The family songs, outings, prejudices and rows are closely woven together with wrack, limpets, dulse and dialect, all beautifully expressed… In Breccia Carson truly makes his mark, speaks.”

Jackie Hardy in Other Poetry
