An Experiment in Navigation

An Experiment in Navigation

By: Rupert M. Loydell (author)Paperback

In Stock


Rupert Loydell's second Shearsman collection is another large compendium of his many-faceted experimental writing. "More than ever, Rupert Loydell's new book An Experiment in Navigation reminds me that he is a painter. By which I don't mean that his writing is primarily visual, but that he rejoices in discovering what his medium is capable of." (Jane Routh) "Loydell renders with equal deftness the plainsong of direct statement and melodious phrasal waves of speech. While he acknowledges that it is '...easier to map out fictions and wallow in distant clouds that deal with linear time', Loydell gives terra firma its full due. His work displays engagement with the figurative "folded pocket map". (Sheila E. Murphy)
