Cover of Mollusc


Helen Clare

Debut collection from a poet captivated by the patterns and patterning of science. Informed by her early career as a Biology teacher, Helen Clare’s writing delights in the whorls and sprung-coils of our physical lives. Whether tackling families, frustration or sexuality, the poems in Mollusc enact a remarkable balancing act between intimate personal truths and precise, undeniable, scientific ones.
