Taking off from the Promethean myth of human creation Gillian Szes second poetry collection explores the “anatomy of clay” and the individual as a sentient mystery. At times reflective instructional playful or strange the first section Quotidianus offers observational poems which recount intimate and ordinary moments often missed overlooked or forgotten. Sze tugs at the fabric of habit and amidst the urban mundane finds her subjects in a woman waiting for the bus a neighbour who talks to his plants a girl smoking after a storm. The following section Extimacy takes a lyrical and confessional turn veering inwards dealing reflexively with the materiality of inner life: the self as ingredients the self as experiment the self as animal and artist. The Anatomy of Clay finds exceptions in the most prosaic conditions and the ineffable distinctions between people selves objects and histories.
