Wan-Hu's Flying Chair explores the 'furious stillness' of love and art. From Chinese legends to scenes from artists' studios, these poems open apertures on twilit worlds, where the 'elastic collision of lovers' burns, ears clang to the 'torture of air', and 'winged creatures quiver on springs'. Here, the voices of old masters and artists' wives, of holy men 'huddled round three-legged dings' and steam engineers dissolve into a curious chorus. In this collection, language seeks to break the 'well of gravity' as it 'tidies the dark.'
