Editorial Reviews

Review

"Thought exists and has this book's solidity... [In Martin Corless-Smith's beautifully etched dictions, there is an older English we only now recognize, caught midway between England and America but rooted in both, and in bodies and consciousness, in the struggles of this century, where 'substance and accident' deliver us to presence, in 'modest love'." (Erin Moure)

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Throughout time, pieces of history and life are scattered for us to put back together. "English Fragments: A Brief History of the Soul" is a collection of poetry from Martin Corless-Smith as he reflects on the meetings of opposites in our world and facing history in the bigger picture. Thoughtful and thought provoking verse, "English Fragments" is a fine read and solidly recommended. "My Picture Left": I now think language deaf/Its sentence blind unconscious read/So much want these hundred hairs/My face his eyes her ears unsaid.
