9781848614598: Drawing in Ash

Drawing in Ash, is prize-winning poet Will Stone's second collection. These compelling poems are divided into three parts, dealing with subjects such as war and genocide, and the Roman ruins of Provence - historic realities which are unpalatable and to which our current society, despite the indulgence of drawing on a vast intellectual and historical warehouse, is unable to properly determine or clarify. The poems of Provence, in particular, deal with the nature of the plethora of ancient ruins that emerge from the earth in that region, like the stubborn backbones of some pre-historic creature, and their peculiar poetic significance for us today. These poems come from a real existential engagement and follow the old dictum that a poet must respond to his time, how things are now, whilst not letting history off the hook.

About the Author:

Will Stone's translations of poetry from the French and German language have been published widely in literary journals and magazines both in the UK and elsewhere in Europe, particularly France, Belgium and Holland. His translations with Anthony Vivis of Trakl, Stramm and Schiele were published to coincide with the exhibition of the art of Max Beckmann in the Tate Anthology of German Expressionist Poetry (Tate Publishing, 2003). He has also published two collections of his own poetry, with a third to appear in 2016.

Review:

Stone is hard, urgent and angry: expressions of righteous indignation are rarely attractive and we may not thank Stone immediately for lifting our blinkers, but Salt are to be congratulated for recognizing this important poet It is clear that Stone has, as poets must, thoroughly absorbed poetic tradition in order to produce a new voice that, while it owes something to what has come before, is nonetheless entirely original.--Simon Darragh "The London Magazine "
