From the Word Go
The poems in From the Word Go come in various shapes, sizes and styles. All make language work hard, are vivid and carefully crafted, and put the reader in contact with a lively, inventive mind. The verses are often prose-like, where meaning builds up line by line. Edmond has a fantastic ear and his poems are always enjoyable.
