Synopsis

In Jennie Feldman's second collection, the earth-shy bird of the title flies high above the territorial rivalries of its region. From the Middle East, "Swift" ranges across Europe to Scotland, always on the lookout for what coheres in the world and its telling encounters - with a Greek beekeeper, a cello maestro, lone figures on society's margins, the Latin poet Lucretius in an East Jerusalem cafe. Buoyed by music as well as water, notably the Aegean Sea and the rare rains of the eastern Mediterranean, these poems combine delicacy and vigour in their pursuit of an elusive equilibrium.
