The Mortal Man

Clothbound, 52 pages, 216 x 138 mm    ISBN 978-1-910693-31-5

The poems in Kieron Winn’s first collection, 'The Mortal Man', range from the Lake District to Rome, and from the eighteenth century to the twenty-first. The poet says that 'the poems revel in the particularity of people and places, and look for the sources of delight in human consciousness. The presence of the past is keenly felt, whether in faces of visitors to the British Museum, conversations with the Romantic age, or the erotic scene on an ancient oil lamp'. The collection includes a poem called 'Wordsworth and Coleridge'. There is a version of a medieval Noh play, and Seamus Heaney’s first collaboration with Eminem. Poems from this collection have appeared in magazines including Agni, The Dark Horse, The London Magazine, The New Criterion, New Statesman, Poetry Review, The Spectator and The Times Literary Supplement, as well as in anthologies and on BBC TV and radio.
