Publisher Description

SHORT LISTED FOR THE FORWARD POETRY PRIZE FOR BEST FIRST COLLECTION 2005 SHORT LISTED FOR THE WHITBREAD POETRY PRIZE 2005 Reading Marabou is like browsing through an album of snapshots, coming across fraught, frozen moments in the lives of intriguingly enigmatic characters. There's an Egyptian mummy, an Elizabethan shoemaker and a flock of Cumbrian sheep; Oscar Wilde, a talking owl and a pair of Renaissance princesses. In this collection, Yeh illuminates the concept of personal identity with startling originality and freshness. Borrowing from the languages of fashion, espionage and revenge tragedy, her taut, pressure-packed lines combine vivid imagery and bold confession to reveal profound emotional truths.
