New Edition of Kevan Manwaring’s The Immanent Moment

TIM front cover - August 2016by Anthony Nanson

I’m delighted to announce that Kevan Manwaring’s poetry collection The Immanent Moment is back in print in a new edition. This is the collection that Kevan regards as the best of all his many collections published to date. This third edition includes a number of new poems.

I’d like to acknowledge the team effort behind the scenes to bring this book back into being: Kirsty Hartsiotis on design, Richard Selby on proofreading, Nimue Brown on blog, and yours truly on synthesiser and drums.

This is what it says on the back of the book:

‘The sound of snow falling on a Somerset hillside, the evanescence of a waterspout on a remote Scottish island, the invisible view from a Welsh mountain, the light on the Grand Canal in Venice, the fire in a Bedouin camel-herder’s eyes … These poems consider the little epiphanies of life and capture such fleeting pulses of consciousness in sinuous, euphonic language. A meditation on time, mortality, transience, and place, this collection celebrates the beauty of both the natural and the man-made, the familiar and the exotic, and the interstices and intimacy of love.’

Here’s a quote from Jay Ramsay’s foreword:

‘Awen, the flow of energy that is creative life, becomes Zen, its apprehension … Kevan’s poetry is (as he is) for life; of that you can be sure.’

And to whet your appetite, the opening lines of one of the poems:

 

Bike black on chalk down,

leather against grass.

Watching the shadows lengthen

on this clear October day.
