Forty-Four Poems and a Volta - James Davies Review copy
“Those familiar with James Davies’ work will know of his fondness for literary experiments. In Forty-Four Poems and a Volta, he takes poetic language back to the lab, dips it in some sort of weird, fizzing liquid and puts it in a tumble driver which doubles as a miniature version of the Large Hadron Collider, then throws in a punnet of yellow stickered plums and a peanut butter cheesecake for good measure. These are poems which go to the edge of comprehensibility and have a picnic. They are funny, deceptively formal and utterly unique. It all makes sense if you let it.”
