Abstract:

David Solway's poetry is haunted with transformation. Few poets possess as commanding a gift for metaphor or can use it to masterfully conjure the ever-changing landscape of the natural world. Like the jerry-rigged farmer's contraption that stands in for "eclectic grandeur and jumbled eloquence," this collection celebrates the way ordinary elements can be yoked to create wholly original insights. Be it through rhyme or free verse, slang or lyricism, and roaming a dazzling range of tones-satirical, philosophical, scabrous, tender, celebratory-Installations offers up a world depicted and inhabited in all its manifestations.
