Insight depends on attentiveness, but can also strike us spontaneously as revelation. The poems in this collection are unified by the urge to look into things and reflect on them, but the responses they represent are as varied, and as revelatory, as the subjects they address: vegetable carving on a cruise ship, where to read poetry, a death-row inmate's last meal. By turns formal, informal, solemn and touching, quizzical and resolute, these poems are consistently informed by Warren Wilson's scrupulous eye for detail. He celebrates the ways in which we engage with the world – both with the analytical gaze of a crystallographer, and the impulsiveness of a sculptor designing a mercury fountain. This is his fourth collection.

About the Author:

Gregory Warren Wilson studied violin and composition at the Royal College of Music and has worked with the Hong Kong Philharmonic and at the Opera House in Florence. His two previous poetry collections are Preserving Lemons, which won the Staple First Edition Award in 1996, and Hanging Windchimes in a Vacuum (Tears in the Fence, 1997). With Carole Satyamurti he has initiated and co-tutored courses on art and poetry at The National Gallery, Tate Britain and The Courtauld Gallery. He is a tutor for The Poetry School.

Review:

These poems have great vitality and freshness; clear and crisp, they also have a questioning, inquiring tone. Elegant, polished and honest, backed by a strong passion.P.N. ReviewThe central themes in Jeopardy (Enitharmon, 2003) are explored in highly crafted, profoundly meditative poems ... a remarkable and moving meditation on love, trust and the essential distance of human relationships.Cold Mountain Review (USA)
