Inexorable Weather is Louis Armand's second collection, and his first to be published in the UK. Armand is an exciting and risk-taking poet, a new voice who delights in stretching language and technique in uncharted directions to electrifying effect. This is an energetic, amusing and thought-provoking collection —

“A poetry filled with guest appearances by the languages we normally delegate authority to; which know more than all of them put together.” Rod Mengham

“Armand is a landscape poet with a difference. His landscapes are replete with ‘anti-constructs’ — concrete surfaces along with the cranes, which might be bird or mechanism. He marks ‘the remoteness between signifier and land-/scape’, rather than its conventional conflation. Armand, who hearkens from Australia but lives now in Prague — by way of New York — knows the ‘fundamental questions’ are those of locality; he poses them with an intellectual acuity and integrity, and in singular language(s) that assert pluralism and always refuse the ‘seductions of amnesia’.” Susan M. Schultz

“Armand is one of those rare poets, to whom the poem exists purely as an organic geography, terrain to be discovered and spelunked and climbed and sunk into and conquered… Armand will hopefully help flush a good measure of bland verse out through our culverts.”
Ethan Paquin, Boston Review
