Among the poems that open Night, David Harsent's follow-up to his Forward Prize-winning collection Legion, is a startling sequence about a garden - but a garden unlike any other.

“Unsettling but powerful”

Darkly lyrical, David Harsent's poetry draws the reader into a world oddly defamiliarised, as though seen from a different angle. Many poems end in darkness, whether literal or metaphorical. To give you a taste:... More
