Bloom

Availability: Ready to download

'Have you looked / have you looked deeply?' ask these poems, rooted in the human body and its movement through an interconnected living world. Bloom, Sarah Westcott's second collection, approaches the cultural and physical spaces where human and non-human lives co-exist. These poems are attuned to a tender, bleeding world in which 'all flesh is grass' and language is matter 'Have you looked / have you looked deeply?' ask these poems, rooted in the human body and its movement through an interconnected living world. Bloom, Sarah Westcott's second collection, approaches the cultural and physical spaces where human and non-human lives co-exist. These poems are attuned to a tender, bleeding world in which 'all flesh is grass' and language is matter. These are poems of resistance: attentive to non-human life, 'eternal and plaintive ... counter-balanced, strange.' Here are field flowers, walled gardens and lost species, the particularities of 'undistinguished things ... seeds, waterbuts, palpable concerns'. Exploring sacrifice and loss, these poems push at the boundaries where girlhood and flower might bleed. These poems are a hymn to being alive in the twenty-first century - the frailties and vigour of life in all its dazzling form, its 'looped breath, perpetual singing'.

    Bloom is a poetry collection that will make you fall in love with poetry again. Through honest, lyrical and intimate observations, we are led into a world where the human and the non-human collide. I enjoyed the intense and exact way the poet connects the environment one is surrounded with, and the fluidity of one's thoughts, philosophy and emotions. Sarah Westcott's poetry makes you think of the masterful Heaney and Mary Oliver and their sentient worlds. It is also a collection that demonstrate Bloom is a poetry collection that will make you fall in love with poetry again.
