The Circus

Ken Bolton

The Circus
A small circus arrives near Trieste - Strong Man, lion, ballerina - from these elements is constructed a contemporary idyll of troubled beauty and humour ...

With a nod to Robbe-Grillet's Jealousy and The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, and yet another to A Bad Day for the Sung Dynasty, The Circus succeeds in being entirely original.

Praise for The Circus:
'The Circus is one of the most agreeable poetry books produced in years, and deserves, like the poet's oeuvre, serious scholarly attention' - Stephen Lawrence Overland Dec, 2010.

'The Circus is wonderful in its effortless rhythm, its relaxed observation, and its elegant witticism' - Transnational Literature May, 2011.
