The Boundaries of Return

Scott Andrew Christensen

Scott Andrew Christensen’s debut collection the boundaries of return is a compelling exploration of passage in and through the natural world. Richly symbolic and formally experimental, Christensen’s poems create worlds at once uniquely perceptive and recognisable, in patterns of verbal play that are distinctive and memorable.

‘Scott Andrew Christensen’s poetry haunts the borders between the physically detailed and the metaphysically mysterious, or between Nature – in its beautiful particulars – and the Spirit, what is ineffable… Although the boundaries of return represents a debut, Christensen is already preternaturally skilled in edging toward Wisdom or Faith via witnessing everyday doings and the beings of persons, creatures, and things. Welcome – with joy – the boundaries of return.’ GEORGE ELLIOT CLARKE
