Description - Not There - Here by Andrew Taylor
Continuing the themes of travel explored in his previous Shearsman collections, Radio Mast Horizon (2013) and March (2017), Andrew Taylor takes the reader from England into pre & post-Brexit Europe, negotiating the arrival of the nightingale, European breakfasts, fast trains into Paris, and the 'beautiful drift' of weaving grasses. The reader is treated to the minimalist notion of moments in time alongside the traversing of travelators in Montparnasse and the intricacies of the 280-character form.
From reviews of March (Shearsman Books, 2017):
"A blast of refreshing air in the gloom of Fenland winter."
"'Honesty Box' is the most recent example of how [Taylor's] words can present a more lasting reflection of Time's inexorable progress. It is an important poem and one that deserves some serious consideration as the latest example of a fine genre in which a human individual contemplates both movement and stasis."
-Ian Brinton, Tears in the Fence
"Taylor is writing a specific type of poetry and remains true to it; he's also able to extract the maximum matter from a minimalist style. There's integrity in these poems, and a dedication to the art, that makes for a richly fulfilling experience for a reader prepared to spend time with them."
-Alan Baker, Litter
"Reading March is a meditative exercise."
-Dominik Szczepaniak, Dundee University Review of the Arts
