  • A Full Cone is Miles Champion’s second Carcanet volume. It features a substantial body of new work as well as a selection of earlier writing hitherto unavailable in the UK.
    Miles Champion was born in Nottingham in 1968. He edited Tom Raworth’s As When (Carcanet, 2015) and Ted Greenwald’s The Age of Reasons (Wesleyan University Press, 2016), and, with Trevor Winkfield, co-authored How I Became a Painter (Pressed Wafer, 2014). He lives in Brooklyn, New York. ... read more
    '€˜It has often been noted that the pace at which Miles Champion'€™s brilliantly intelligent poems unfold is rapid. Ideas and images tumble into words and the words become present as moments of conceptual or emotional consequence. But, though high velocity is in the making of the poems, there is no swift taking away. The moments aren'€™t rescinded; the poems are not a demonstration of lyric evanescence. Champion'€™s work, rather, is about phenomenological consequence, and consequence lingers, lasts. This is a collection of monumental significance -€” and the work is gorgeous.'
