Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Picador Poetry


While The Brink, Jacob Polley’s first collection, was widely praised for its complex music and imagistic brilliance, few readers will be prepared for the somewhat different voice that emerges from Little Gods. More and more, Polley has been guided by the sort of old-fashioned lyric inspiration that is all too rare in contemporary poetry. Through the quietly insistent chants of its love poems and almost occult conjurings of place and time, through its brave directness of speech and unsentimental intimacy of address, Little Gods builds into the kind of sheerly memorable statement only a poet of very considerable gifts could forge.

‘The kind of poetry that imbues the everyday, the tarnished and burnished, with the possibilities of the transcendent’ Guardian
