Pummelling the Enemy Volta: Jeanette Lynes’ Bedlam Cowslip: The John Clare Poems

Jeanette Lynes’ latest book engages on multiple levels. Bedlam Cowslip: The John Clare Poems can be read as biography, time travel, (channeled) memoir or simply, if you overlook the collection’s subtitle, as the continuation of a prolific Canadian poet’s exploration of identity and landscape, language, form and metaphor in this, her seventh collection of poetry.
