The poetry of Nigel McLoughlin

I discovered Nigel McLoughlin's poetry at a recent event, where he was reading. I was impressed by the cadences of his language and the obvious inspiration he finds in the natural world. He also has a very engaging reading style.

You can read some of his work here.

Dissonances, McLoughlin's fourth collection is available from bluechrome.

Thank you for this tip-off. I thought McLoughlin's vocabulary was 'crisp' and most evocative.

Thanks so much for the suggestion. I'm not familiar with his work, but am off now to make his acquaintance!
