Say Something Back
About this Item
Say Something Back will allow readers to see just why the name of Denise Riley has been held in such high regard by her fellow poets for so long. The book reproduces 'A Part Song', a profoundly moving document of grieving and loss, and one of the most widely admired long poems of recent years. Elsewhere these poems become a space for contemplation, for research, and the deep consideration of the nature of mourning, of health, of the natural world and of physical law. But finally, they extend our sense of what the human speech act can mean - and especially what is drawn forth from us when when we address our dead. Lyric, intimate, acidly witty, unflinchingly brave, Say Something Back is a deeply moving book by one of our finest poets, and one destined to introduce Riley's name to a wide new readership.
