New & Selected Poems


Price: £9.95






Celebrated writers Annie Freud and Julia Copus select the very best from Dennis Casling’s collected works, including his out-of-print PBS recommended first collection, Endorphin Angels.

 

Casling's was a Northern European voice, reminiscent of Transtromer and Rilke.  He believed poetry spoke from the soul and for him the soul was rooted in the commonplace.  Throughout this compelling book, he deals with serious issues with a lightness of touch and a generosity of spirit.  

 

Dennis Casling was blind and as a poet he described what he saw working from visual memory, the imagination and often from dream-like states.  He said:  'The act of seeing is informed by the imagination.  I am not distracted by the visual.  I spend my time looking at the invisible.’

 

Dennis Casling’s poems begin in raw power and darkness, move through passages of Simic-like magic and dissolve into limpid, often melancholy, clarities. - George Szirtes on Endorphin Angels
