9781904634072: Reversal

Kate Rhodes's powerful first collection is part autobiography, part travelogue. In a series of moving poems she reverses at full speed into the past, searching for the father she never really got to know, and revisiting the childhood house she was often afraid to return to. Her travel poems consider the long, reflective car journeys she has taken across America, pausing to contemplate emotional landmarks. Don Paterson has described her style as pared to the bone, elegant and precise.’ Her collection moves confidently across an eclectic range of subjects from a portrait of Alfred Wallis to a one-to-one dialogue with Damien Hirst's shark, but all of her poems are characterised by their warmth, accessibility, and wit.

About the Author:

Kate Rhodes was born in London in 1964. She finished an English degree in 1987, before going on to complete a PhD at the University of Essex on the work of the American dramatist Tennessee Williams in 1993. Since that time she has worked as an English teacher in a sixth form college and more recently as a university lecturer. Currently she works for the Open University and as an adult learning tutor for the WEA. Kate lived for several years in North America during the 1990s. During 1997-8 she was the Cole and Drey Scholar at Rollins Liberal Arts College in Florida. She now lives in Suffolk.
