Soho by Richard Scott



ISBN: 9780571338917 Category: Tags: ,


In this intimate and vital debut Richard Scott creates an uncompromising portrait of love and gay shame. Examining how trauma becomes a part of the language we use Scott takes us back to our roots: childhood incidents the violence our scars betray forgotten forebears and histories. The hungers of sexual encounters are underscored by the risks that threaten when we give ourselves to or accept another. But the poems celebrate joy and tenderness too as in a sequence re-imagining the love poetry of Verlaine. The collection crescendos to Scott’s tour de force ‘Oh My Soho!’ where a night stroll under the street lamps of Soho Square becomes a search for true lineage a reclamation of stolen ancestors hope for healing and above all the finding of our truest selves.
