Product description

Nil Nil, Don Paterson's first volume of poetry, won the Forward Prize for Best First Collection in 1993 and heralded the arrival of a major new talent. The book presented a new and urgent poetry of dream-life, mystery and music, sexual obsession and the consolations of drink - all delivered with great formal skill and imaginative daring. 'One of the finest first books of poems I've read for ages.' Paul Muldoon 'If you are wondering whether great poems are still being written, you ought to read Don Paterson's.' Charles Simic 'One of the most ferociously talented of all British poets.' Catherine Lockerbie
