Summary

Gift Horse, Mark Callanan "s second full-length collection of poetry, was largely written following a near-fatal medical emergency in 2007. The poems offer up the story of a young man whose gratitude at being alive is undercut by Lazarus-like confusion and ambivalence. Brandishing a newly acute sense of mortality, Callanan emerges as an Atlantic fl neur stalked by terrifying sea legends, death-steeped domesticity (where even supermarket lobsters Sweigh in against oblivion ) and the extinct Newfoundland Wolf. Understated, sinister and unsettling, Gift Horse is a work of considerable craft and vision.
