Nine Fathom Deep

A collection of poems by

Like the work of the European poets who have nourished him, David Constantine's poetry is informed by a profoundly humane vision of the world. In his title-poem -which illuminates the themes of the whole book -the lovers are a utopian answering back against the curse (following a crime against Nature) that is carried by the ship passing above them. Throughout these poems, the personal life, with its own joys and suffering, asserts itself against a world whose characteristic forces are dispiriting and destructive. Nine Fathom Deep shows how all personal life and all poetry written from it deal with the realities of social and political life in the here and now, assert themselves, fight for survival, and actively seek to make a world in which humane self-realisation would be more and more, not less and less, possible.
