The Culture of My Stuff

Adam Crothers

Carcanet Collection  

The Culture of My Stuff is a collection of sonnets, prose and political nonsense rhymes. Light-footed and light-fingered, the poems piece the stuff of their culture into surreal polemic and elegy, compressing and exploding their 'various  vocabularies'. Brexit, Trump, Northern Ireland, Komodo dragons, the male gaze, Leonard Cohen, lapsed Protestantism, David Bowie, horror cinema and typos are considered from a distance that's swiftly diminished by complicity, sorrow and self-critique. Unable to transcend the consumerist violence of the world they confront and embrace, the poems nonetheless strive for emotional accuracy and lyric depth, giving form to a voice that revels in contradiction, excess, mischief and music.
