A Map of the Territory
By: Nigel Forde (author)Paperback
Nigel Forde is fascinated by things in the process of change: music, the momentary epiphany, the precarious balance of twilight rather than night or day. The poems, written over a period of years, meditate on memory and landscape: in the unremarkable and evanescent lives can find their greatest clarity. Two central sequences, 'A Map of the Territory' and 'Touchstones', express ways of remaking memories in language. 'Touchstones', a Hungarian sonnet sequence, explores the creative possibilities of strict poetic forms. 'A Map of the Territory' attempts both truth to events and to what distance has made of them. The collection maps a landscape and the mind that it has shaped.
NIGEL FORDE lives in York, where he began his career as an actor at the Theatre Royal. He co-founded Riding Lights Theatre Co., and has contributed to many BBC radio programmes, most notably as a presenter of Radio 4's Bookshelf. One of his screenplays for the BBC 2 animation series Testament won an EMMY, and his latest film was awarded a Special Distinction at the 2002 Annecy International Animation Festival. He has written screenplays for two films, and a musical co-written with Arnold Wesker has been premiered in Japan. Nigel Forde has won a number of prizes for his poetry.
