This is Claire Askew's first full collection. Her poems focus on the lives and experiences of women - particularly the socially or economically marginalized - and take pains both to empathize and to recognize the limits of this empathy. The poems embody a need to acknowledge and challenge the poet's privileged position as documenter and outsider; a responsibility to the poem's political message, and to that message's human subjects.

About the Author:

Claire Askew was born in 1986 and grew up in the rural Scottish borders. She has lived in Edinburgh since 2004, and holds a PhD in Creative Writing & Contemporary Women's Poetry from the University of Edinburgh. Her poems have appeared in numerous publications, including The Guardian, Poetry Scotland, PANK, The Edinburgh Review and Be The First To Like This: New Scottish Poetry (Vagabond Voices, 2014), and have been selected twice for the Scottish Poetry Library's Best Scottish Poems of the Year. In 2013 she won the International Salt Prize for Poetry, and in 2014 was runner-up for the inaugural Edwin Morgan Poetry Award for Scottish poets under 30. She runs the One Night Stanza blog, and collects old typewriters (she currently has around 30).

Review:

'Claire Askew's voice is arrestingly and distinctively her own, imbued with a sense of caring and inducing, in her more intimate moments, a scarcely bearable poignancy.' - Stewart Conn. 'Askew's is a humane consciousness, with a genius for communicating how people tick... She writes with an agenda compellingly, harnessing flashes of imagist brilliance.' - Jen Hadfield.

Book Description BLOODAXE BOOKS LTD, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This changes things is Claire Askew s first full collection, coming after years of work in Scotland s flourishing poetry and spoken word scene. Her poems focus on the lives and experiences of women - particularly the socially or economically marginalised - at pains both to empathise and to recognise the limits of this empathy. They embody a need to acknowledge and challenge the poet s privileged position as documenter and outsider, a responsibility to the poem s political message and to that message s human subject. This changes things draws much of its strength from this exploration of inbetweenness. Claire Askew s purposeful deployment of objects, lighting effects and liminal spaces implicates her reader in the poem s argument, holds up a mirror and asks us to pay attention. The book s romantic relationships, depictions of frustrated travel or social mobility, are bound up in its awareness of the systems of power that permit no true state of innocence. Even the final poem, Hydra - with its celebration of the body and its senses - cannot ultimately allow us off the hook. Seller Inventory # AA99781780372761
