Corpus

Michael Symmons Roberts

This ambitious and inventive collection centres around the body. Mystical, philosophical and erotic, the bodies in these poems move between different worlds - life and after-life, death and resurrection - encountering pathologists’ blades, geneticists’ maps and the wounds of love and war. Ranging effortlessly between the physical extremes of life and death, the poems in Corpus speak most movingly of ’living the half-life between two elements’, of what it is to be unique and luminously alive.
