About Black Shiver Moss:
Graham Mort writes beautifully about North Yorkshire, but in Black Shiver Moss new places are made familiar by Mort’s vivid descriptions and evocations: landscapes and peoples as distant as South Africa and as close as Europe. Here is a poet of deep feeling who eschews sentimentality for shrewd observation. His muscular language has a Heaney-esque deftness, yet reaches beyond the physical to register the frailty and brevity of human existence. Mort moves us beyond the visible, towards spiritual and philosophical concerns. What really impresses is the darkly magnificent tone sustained throughout: reminiscent of Beethoven’s late quartets, of Shakespeare’s tragedies, of classical landscape painting, a tone suffused with seriousness and mortality.

 

The winner of this giveaway will be chosen at random from all our email subscribers on 1st September 2017, so make sure you sign up to Seren News before this deadline to be in with a chance of winning.
