Ian Burgham


Reviews of this Book

“This is a poetry of fault lines and connections, … the “flaws that grow compassion.” Though thanatos may haunt [his] many worlds, the creative urge invigorates them … with all the attendant longings stirred by Eros, agapé and familial love.”
–John Barton

“Ian Burgham achieves the near-impossible in these poems – they are at once visceral, yet elusive; situated, very much present in the suitcases, rooms and iced breezes of our lives, while at the same time they reach towards the ineffable unsaid, “the unquiet thing.” The raw eloquence of these extraordinary poems is arresting and deeply memorable.”
–Jeanette Lynes
