Polly Atkin’s debut poetry collection, Basic Nest Architecture, is complex, vivid and moving. Based in Grasmere, in the Lake District, the author is inspired by the landscape and by the famous Romantic poets such as Wordsworth and Keats, who have walked there and written about the fells and lakes. Nature is a guiding presence, but the author’s personal story, of enduring a little-known and sometimes debilitating illness, is also the backdrop to this striking poetry. Formally, this work is more akin to the metaphysical poets in its fervent use of metaphor, in it’s multiple layers of meaning, in its quest for answers to the most pressing questions of mortality.
