Polesworth revisited

At the end of last week, the always interesting Kumquat Poetry published this excellent piece by Coventry poet Barry Patterson, who was one of the attendees at the workshop I ran at Polesworth Abbey last summer. There's always something very Anglo-Saxon about Barry's work - he uses little kenning-like devices such as "brains-nest" - that appeals to me a lot.

You can read more of Barry's work in his chapbook Nature Mystic, which was published by Heaventree Press in 2008. I've had a review of it almost finished for about 18 months now - I promise to get it posted here before long.
