Hunting the Boar

“I want this to happen in a second / on the page,” Beverley Bie Brahic writes in ‘Stations in the Metro’. “But the mind keeps thinking other things.”
Poised and intimately crafted, Brahic’s poems flicker restlessly in their attention to everything – history, memories, food, sex – that is the present moment.
Beverley Bie Brahic is a prize-winning translator of Apollinaire, Yves Bonnefoy, and Francis Ponge. Her previous collection, White Sheets, was shortlisted for the Forward Prize.
