Synopsis

The largest collection of original writing yet by this talented British poet, painter, editor and publisher. "Loydell is a poet who, in painting a Steinian portrait of himself, tells us he is 'interested in several sounds at once, he is withdrawing into the museum of improvisation'. There appear to be two aspects of these several sounds: tightly drawn lyrics that speak to his most intense experiences, and texts that improvise into predetermined structures, from other texts, whose reading is a different kind of intense experience. In the end, the distinction is a false one. What this book contains is a substantial collection from one of the most interesting writers around. Everything is in his voice, wherever it has come from. Even if it our own voices we hear, strangely othered, something angelic amidst our animal grunts." - Robert Sheppard
