Synopsis

Continental Drift is a book about place, about the attachments and appropriations that shape our relationship with the land. Transcending the border of country and continent, these poems search out ways that language balances the demands of location. This is a poetry of shifting localities and the forces that make them. Continental Drift is Nancy Gaffield's second collection. Tokaido Road, published in 2011, won the Aldeburgh First Collection Prize.
