Moored Man is a shape-changer, passionate and dangerous. In this powerful cycle, we see him moulding dykes, sorting gravel, infilling creeks, tricking the unwary, drowning the innocent, howling and dancing, and all the while worrying away at his own contradictory identity and relationship to human beings. This is Kevin Crossley-Holland's first new collection since "The Language of Yes" (Enitharmon Press, 1996), and it is a vivid and penetrating enquiry into the dramatic north Norfolk landscape where he now lives. Norman Ackroyd's evocative etchings and watercolours provide a haunting accompaniment to the poems in this sumptuous edition.
