Triumph Of Cancer Chris McCabe

£9.99

Paperback

The Triumph of Cancer blurs the borders of science and poetry, working with forensic attention to capture the `inscape’ of the living world. In this powerful new collection, presented as a museum of artefacts, Chris McCabe returns to the site of personal trauma to confront disease head-on. Elegies for his father, poets and celebrities mingle with still-life portraits of organic and synthetic subjects. These poems move with lyric grace and surgical precision against a backdrop of terror and cancerous global politics, showing McCabe at the height of his powers: dextrous, darklycomic and a true original.
