Review/blurb: “Lyrical, local, literary, strong, domestic, delicate, sexy and epic, Amy De’Ath’s Erec & Enide also brings the modernity and speed of much recent North American poetry to these too-often inward-looking isles. “In the lay and spook of an age,” as she says, there is enough screwing over, glamour, residual meaning and resin delight in these poems to intrigue, excite and entertain even the gloomiest reader. De’Ath’s emphatic arrival on the British poetry scene is cause for both hope and celebration.” Tim Atkins
