Fall of the Rebel Angels: Poems 1996-2006 - Salt Modern Poets (Paperback)Andy Brown (author)
- Not available
Fall of the Rebel Angels: Poems 1996-2006 brings together the best of Andy Brown's poems from the first ten years of his publications. Through his light-touch exploration of our sense of selves, public and private, Brown's work explores ideas of `relationship' in its widest senses -
the ecology of the natural world and our relationship to it
the intimacy and intricacies of personal relationships
the relationships between language and experience, memory, imagination and reality
Informed by philosophies of Critical Realism, Brown's poetry explores pertinent environmental and philosophic ideas, combining ontological inquiry with accessible lyric language and form, subtle humour, and a direct engagement with the `thing-ness' of the world.

Andy Brown is one of our most interesting and exciting younger poets. With its love of ideas and language, his work demonstrates that there need be no barriers in poetry; that the philosophical, the lyrical and the playful can be combined in work of assured and generous vision.--John Burnside
These are poems which are, in every way, suffused with light.--Deryn Rees-Jones
