9781936797660: Everything Broken Up Dances

James Byrne's first book to be published in America navigates personal and socio-political worlds, journeying through Burma, Libya, and Syria along with documenting the poet's years in New York City and subsequent return to England. This is a flexible poetry written "on the hoof," nomadic and innovative, with imagery and language dexterously sparring. With linguistic tenacity but by tremendously varied means, Byrne shows how "everything broken up dances."

About the Author:

James Byrne is a poet, editor, and translator born near London, England, where he now lives again after completing an MFA as a Stein Fellow at New York University. His most recent poetry collections in the United Kingdom are Blood/Sugar and White Coins (Arc Publications, 2009 and 2015). He is editor of The Wolf, a renowned poetry journal he co-founded in 2002, and also co-editor of Voice Recognition: 21 Poets for the 21st Century (Bloodaxe Books, 2009). Byrne teaches at Edge Hill University and was previously Poet in Residence at Clare Hall, University of Cambridge.

Review:

"Reading James Byrne is like gulping firewater shots of the world. . . . It is often as though the precise, sensual snail-horns of Byrne's language keep touching a violence, the profligate violence of our epoch, and retracting; they extend again and retract. In the hopeful pulse of that sensing, 'the world sees itself in this night.'" -- Forrest Gander

"To say that James Byrne is one of the best UK poets of his generation is to underestimate him. For in these poems conscience gathers scraps of voices in destroyed cities, always on search of 'the other,' in moments after blackout, in that darkness where the eye begins to see." -- Ilya Kaminsky

"This is language charged with a tough, sensual contraflow music, vividly alive to inquiry and witness . . . virtù and gravitas are in concord with a hermetic passion . . . fiercely and beautifully saying the unsayable." -- Ishion Hutchinson --Advance Praise
