Kelvin Corcoran: LYRIC LYRIC
This has the honour of being the first ever Reality Street title in 1993, and only a few copies now remain. It was Kelvin Corcoran's sixth collection.
"The 'straight music' of the English lyrical tradition 'drives' these poems that are honed, hard, elegant and economic. Then, suddenly, brilliance flashes out against the grain, in the flaws. It is 'the ripped voice makes us free'."
“His vivid poetry shocks us into thought by its sheer intelligence.”
