Book Description Salt Publishing, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. 2. Auflage. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Zoo is Tobias Hill s third collection of poems. It shows the growing maturity of a voice already distinctive three years ago, when his first collection was noted for its `grand irony and playful humour, with episodes of tenderness and even charm . Hill s poems combine narrative impetus with musical lyricism. Influenced by the poetry of Japan and the paintings of Edward Hopper, they are full of intense sound, smell, and visions, Often through a nocturnal eye, Hill describes an urban-pastoral landscape, full of the greenhouse luxuriance of city flora, fauna and humanity. Hill s special territory, in poetry and prose, is the `urban-pastoral . his native North London is transformed, with many deftly dark touches, into an uneasy realm of the imagination. Hill clearly appreciated Simon Armitage s storytelling persona; he also drew upon observation of the natural world in ways associated with Ted Hughes. Much of his imagery is by turns delicately `Japanese , or reminiscent of the heyday of Craig Raine s `Martian style. Hill has a romantic dimension in his work that is all his own. As a young man with an intense curiosity about the world, his work is full of sensual images, vignettes of city life - and romance . these are poems of flirtation and desire. - The closeup detail taken directly from nature, then skewed through 90 Degrees to give the reader something completely new, even unique . with this third collection, Hill promises to be a real force in poetry, displaying an utterly contemporary understanding of how nature continues to work. - Poetry Review There is a fin de siecle decadence about them . not least in their brightly coloured diction, their luxuriant descriptiveness, their louche postures. - Poetry Wales Superb conjurations of place. - Adam Mars Jones Compassionate and intelligent . so full of action and interest and that brings alive such an array of people and places, that it is difficult to believe they sprang from the pen of one writer. - Rachel Cusk.
