The Striped World

£9.99

With their tidal imagination, the poems in this debut collection sweep between old worlds and new, seeking the lost and recovering the found among shipwrecks, underwater zoos and transitory lands.

Emma Jones brings her inventive worlds dramatically to life in a series of vividly distilled meetings: of settlers and indigenous peoples, of seawaters and shore, of humanity and the wilds of nature. Here tigers stalk the captive and the free, while Daphne tells of her new leaves, ‘They sing, and make the world.’ The same might be said of the poems themselves in this restless and memorable search for belonging.

The Striped World marks Emma Jones as a new voice worth following. Here she is discussing her debut collection.
