The Odin Stone brings together a number of lyric poems written before the publication of Stuart Henson’s narrative A Place Apart (Shoestring Press) and a rich sampling of his recent work—including the brand new “Pushkin Variations”.

At the heart of the collection lie two further sequences—“Rilke in Florence” and “Verlaine in Camden”—which allow the author space and place to inhabit imaginations not his own.

‘In a variety of forms, all handled with the assurance readers of Henson’s earlier work will expect, some forty poems treat their story with understanding and historical imagination.   This is ‘a good read’.  A Place Apart is a match for most novels, and does things few of them can do.’ Glyn Pursglove, Acumen
