BABA, Lucy Harvest Clarke

“There is much else to admire in this work which is deeply engaged in poetic tradition at the same time as it radically reinvents it; offering a precise, completely integrated diction that is expressive without becoming sentimental or egotistical, and intelligently discriminating without becoming abstract. Harvest Clarke’s achievement here certainly puts her in the top flight of lyric poets working in the UK today, and her work deserves the widest possible audience.”

Scott Thurston reviews BABA by Lucy Harvest Clarke at Stride.
