Other Rooms: Selected Poems

Paperback / softback
There is a powerfully dramatic and narrative quality to the new poems which preface Neil Curry's Other Rooms , and we hear in them a wide variety of voices speaking to us from different times and different places, but speaking to us of things which nevertheless concern us deeply today. Whatever form Curry adopts is handled with flexibility and skill, and wherever the poems are set there is a geographical and linguistic exactness which makes them as compelling as his acclaimed translations of the classics.
