Perhaps Bag: New and Selected Poems

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Perhaps Bag is about what it feels like to think. Carol Rumens is a kind of old woman who lives in a shoe with too many children that includes me, you, Russians, and Englishmen and women, and children, and animals. And somehow she knew what to do.
She is an English poet, a European poet, whose imagination goes beyond the borders of Europe. Her poetry is densely peopled, clamorous with voices, furious and with an edge of hilarious clarity . . . the bravado, the assurance of the beautiful but damned, philosophical, playful, with umpteen forms expertly managed.
