pOn the peripheries of UK poetry culture during his lifetime, W. S. Graham is now recognized one of the great poets of the twentieth century. In the first concerted study of Grahams poetics in a generation, David Nowell Smith argues that Graham is exemplary for the poetics of the mid-century: his extension of modernist explorations of rhythm and diction; his interweaving of linguistic and geographic places; his dialogue with the plastic arts; and the tensions that run through his work, between philosophical seriousness and play, solitude and sociality, regionalism and cosmopolitanism, the heft and evanescence of poetrys medium. Drawing on newly unearthed archival materials, Nowell Smith orients Grahams poetics around the question of the art object. Graham sought to craft his poems into honed, finished objects; yet he was also aware that the poems finished object is never wholly finished. Grahams work thus facilitates a broader reflection on language as a medium for art-making./p
