Fade Street / Mark Granier

£3.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This book is in excellent condition. The dust jacket has slight edge wear and the bottom of the back cover is marked from a price sticker, but is otherwise in excellent condition. Internally the book is almost as new.

The title poem in Mark Granier's third collection, Fade Street, is based on a photograph taken in Dublin in 1878. Positioning itself behind the camera, it sets the photographer's obsession, to compose and preserve, against the moment, whose vanishing act is part of its vitality. Like photographs, many of these sensual, often short poems work with concentrated imagery and effects of light and shade. The intention is that they be appreciated, like memorable photographs or songs thrown out on the dark, without any 'irritable reaching after fact and reason' or effort beyond the turning of a page. Poetry Ireland Review describes Granier as "well-known for his visual sense", and the Irish Times described Fade Street as "ekphrastic".
