O. at the Edge of the Gorge
By Martyn Crucefix

As much a celebration of vividly lived experience as daunted by the ruinous passing of time, the voice in these poems is an Orphic one. It contemplates a journey into the ‘depths of the gorge’ and the dangers or redemption that lie there. This fourteen-poem crown of sonnets – filled with the landscape and natural history of the Marche of east Italy – is the latest work by award-winning poet and translator Martyn Crucefix.
