The Ted Hughes Award-winning poet David Morley explores the suffering and tragedy of his Romany childhood through fiercely personal poems. Known for writing about myth and fable, Morley reinvents his poetic with a formally rich, thematically challenging and emotionally charged collection.
Awards won by David Morley Winner, 2015 Poetry Society Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry (The Invisible Gift )
Praise for David Morley 'T'he strange atmospherics suffuse every page while the balance struck between mystery and disclosure can be breathtaking...Such moments led me to feel that Morley had not so much created a new universe as uncovered one. Any universe is bound together by language; and Morley brings Romany vocabulary fizzing and crackling into our consciousness'
Tim Liardet, Guardian 'A rare and beautiful book.'
The Guardian on The Invisible Kings (2007) 'Here are two outsiders working at poetry from the underside of nature, Clare now âin a brown huffâ, Wisdom snaring âa warren with a snigger of wiresâ. Using a mixture of sonnets, Romani language, concrete poetry, and the dynamics of birdsong, Morley conjures a marvellous sense of nature as intimacy, something precise yet loaded and of immense importance to us.'
George Szirtes 'Enchantment by David Morley is a linguistic feast...'
Jonathan Bate Sunday Telegraph Books Of The Year 2010
