My first full collection of poetry, mixing themes of place and memory, family and loss.
‘In West South North, North South East, Daniel Bennett envisages landscapes of decay; urban Britain as a ruined, post-apocalyptic wasteland, haunted by its past, at odds with its present, fearful of its future; countryside and coast bound loosely together by mud and mildew. A hauntingly compelling collection from a distinctive new voice.’
‘Simultaneously delighting in and defying the hold place has on us, Daniel Bennett is a poet-topographer of back streets and back waters, letting ambiguity and dream stray into his minute notations, charting how ‘imagination occupies these places.”’
