"Remarkable Occurrences is Lodge at his best ? finely observed moments, images to die for, and an assured tone throughout. There is nothing parochial or self-centred in this colourful and cosmopolitan collection by a poet who knows and loves his craft. The title sequence celebrates Cook?s voyage into the unknown, rescuing characters and incidents from historic and cultural obscurity, but the real exploration here is of ourselves in a diversity of places and of English as a European language. A work for our times."  Will Kemp "A tour de force in two parts, the first part recording the poet's own travels with his customary sharp insights. The distilling of Cook's Remarkable Occurrences is a sustained departure from Lodge's usual style. Part threnody, part celebration, it is a remarkable achievement."  Hannah Stone
