Small World grows out of the days before and after. It has the authority of lived experience, beginning with what Price dubs ‘existential family poems’: honed, lyrical, they explore the dynamics of modern life. Price’s poems observe and reflect, revisiting and deepening the themes of his earlier books. These poems prepare us for the moment when the poet’s lover, ‘the Patient’, is afflicted. At times angry and despairing, the poems evoke hospital conditions and social attitudes to the ill, but the main focus is on the intricate reality of living day to day, trying to bring memory to bear on the future: Price’s produces a multi-layered collection that builds a rich portrait of love under almost intolerable pressure.
