A COLOMBER IN THE HOUSE OF POESY

for Aquifer. red

The Colomber, a mysterious shark-like creature, borrowed from a short story by Dino Buzzati, presides over Lyndon Davies‘ third collection of poetry. The mariners’ legend has it that a colomber will pursue its chosen victim relentlessly, for an entire lifetime if necessary, until at last it succeeds in devouring him. Like many such stories about the world, this one turns out to be both catastrophically false and true.

 

Ranging through literature, art, myth and history, A Colomber in the House of Poesy explores the strange quantum nature of some of our most fundamental descriptions of reality, those time-honoured poetic artefacts which never quite stay where they’re put, or behave as they’re asked to.

 

‘What unfurls is unexpected, steady and fernlike in its ability to open all around, laterally and forward moving. I could lose myself in many of the opportunities of the richest parts. . .’

 

David Greenslade
