9 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
News from the Front, David Harsent's fifth collection of poems, is a sequence that explores a powerful drama of separation. It uses the voices of several characters: a man is separated by war from his common-law wife, and while he is away she gives birth to his child, a boy. The man writes letters home and also keeps a journal, which consists partly of a Bestiary, which he hopes to be able to show his son. The woman lives on the edge of Dartmoor, and her fantasies and inner life are so strong as to bring the man almost within reach; the boy falls in with this, and sees his absent father as a hero
Legion by David Harsent( Book )
8 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The title sequence of David Harsent's new collection offers reports from an unnamed war-zone. Throughout, various accounts of conflict accrue: a series of discrete images, voices, events, and intermittent despatches - immediate and vivid - that cohere to give witness to war and the consequences of war, and seem to lock the reader into the crisis along with the protagonists
Night by David Harsent( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Among the poems that open Night, David Harsent's follow-up to his Forward Prize-winning collection Legion, is a startling sequence about a garden - but a garden unlike any other. It sets the tone for a book in which the sureties of daylight become uncertain: dark, unsettling narratives about what wakes in us when we escape our day-lit selves to visit a place where the dream-like and the nightmarish are never far apart. The book culminates in the seductive and brilliantly sustained 'Elsewhere', a noirish, labyrinthine quest-poem in which the protagonist is drawn ever onward through a series of encounters and reflections like an after-hours Orpheus, hard-bitten and harried by memory."--Provided by publisher
