  1. Held

    Burns, Elizabeth, 1957-2015
    Edinburgh : Polygon, 2010.

    This remarkable collection explores the complex ways in which people and things are held - both metaphorically and physically - in the world. Through motifs of vessels and containers, Elizabeth Burns' exquisite and energetic poetry investigates the relationships between presence and absence, resilience and fragility. As delicate as they are vivid, the poems in 'Held' resonate with breathtaking emotional power. Previously published as a pamphlet, the central section of the collection, 'The Shortest Days', was winner of the 2009 Michael Marks Award for Poetry Pamphlets.

  2. Held

    Michaels, Anne, 1958-
    London : Bloomsbury Publishing, 2023.

    1917. On a battlefield near the River Aisne, John lies in the aftermath of a blast, unable to move or feel his legs. Struggling to focus his thoughts, he is lost to memory as the snow falls-a chance encounter in a pub by a railway, a hot bath with his lover on a winter night. 1920. John has returned from war to North Yorkshire, near a different river. He is alive but still not whole. Reunited with Helena, an artist, he reopens his photography business and tries to keep on living. But the past erupts insistently into the present, as ghosts begin to surface in his pictures: ghosts with messages he cannot understand. So begins a narrative that spans four generations of connections and consequences that ignite and re-ignite as the century unfolds. In luminous moments of desire, comprehension, longing, and transcendence, the sparks fly upward, working their transformations decades later. Held is affecting and intensely beautiful, full of mystery, wisdom, and compassion, a novel by a writer at the height of her powers.
