Robert Sheppard reviews Lee Harwood

“A gatherer of fragments, Harwood’s writing is a mode of slow accretion, of building blocks of poetry (and prose), and presenting them in relationship with others, to allow them to resonate with one another. We think of collage as a technique of rip and tear, shuffle and paste, fix and finish, but for Harwood it is more like a slow game of chess.”
