Proud Flesh by John Wilkinson
Book DescriptionWilkinson's searing classic, Proud Flesh, is a blistering journal of love's intensities and convulsions. Panning across its characters like a camera, this is lyric poetry as film noire, filled with jealousy, violence and sexual obsession. Incandescent images and language play across the bodies of the lovers, each caught, frame by frame, in an intense act of surveillance.

Reckitt's Blue, Paperback (January 2013)» View all books by John Wilkinson
An iconic work of Western art, Fragonard's "L'escarpolette", or "The Swing", is often reproduced, and its foreground image of a young woman losing her slipper midswing is widely familiar. This book explores that scene in a long poem that engages with the image of the flying slipper, and presents two other sequences of poems based on paintings.
