Description

AST RONYME, n. (French). A sequence of asterisks used to hide a name or password. In this follow-up to her acclaimed debut, The Shipwrecked House (Guardian First Book Award longlisted), Anglo-Breton poet Claire Tr vien takes us to a place where ancient stone circles collide with the language of the internet. Tr vien becomes curator of imaginary museums, indexing objects and histories with a quixotic energy. The stunning central sequence recounts a journey across the Scottish island of Arran, where myths are carved into remote caves and a mountain hides behind a 'froufrou of gas'. Formally inventive and intricately composed, Ast ronymes is a book of redactions - and an elegy for places and people that have been ruined by time, erosion or neglect.
