The Rose of Toulouse

(2013)
A collection of poems by

 
 
'I should never ask directions to my childhood', writes Fred D'Aguiar: 'There is no way back home'.

The Rose of Toulouse is a book of geographies tracing the various places the poet has lived, their histories, and his own history as he travels away from who he was. His transformations and shifts - between Britain, Guyana and the USA - are his identity: 'Each year I travel, my passport photolooks less like me.'

In both flexible free verse and more formally patterned poems, D'Aguiar conveys the fragility of flesh and the transience of memories.
