Picture of Aria
Sarah Holland-Batt’s Aria, winner of the 2007 Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize, is a striking debut. Like piano music heard througha high window, the language is haunting but entirely of this world. The poems are awake to the dark constellations of art and history, to what momentarily is, and to what flows endlessly on.
