In Larach John Foggin writes about memory and its unreliabilities, the sentimentalities and distortions of history, the elitist appropriations of myth, and memory as an act of atonement. Larach is about the fall of a horse, and the fall of a boy, and it’s also about the dumb who go down in history and disappear.
ReviewsThis is a slim volume, but there is much to it. The language and music of Foggin’s poetry has a deceptive simplicity. It is also muscular and effective, constantly seeking to dig beneath the surface of things: “The land shifts, won’t be fixed, // The metalled road will crumble // the maps will need redrawing”. (‘Suishnish’). Larach is a beautifully produced chapbook, and remarkably cheap at £3, with all proceeds going to help the cold-weather shelters.
