From the publisher


Brilliant Corners is both an inquiry into and a redressal of inherited cultures and the language that trips off our tongue. Its preoccupations are the tangible damage inflicted by empires, plunder of the global money markets, disfigured lives, and the bitter salves of Western privilege. Engaging with writers and artists in the European canon, in a wide range of forms the poems take necessary risks in their scrupulous approach to different experiences.

‘A richly cosmopolitan set of poems, unflinching and restrained in equal measure.’ – Priyamvada Gopal

‘It’s a book that enlarges the poem.’ – D. Nurkse

‘Completely original and utterly inspiring.’ – Jon Snow
