Description

WINNER OF THE FELIX DENNIS PRIZE FOR BEST FIRST COLLECTION
SHORTLISTED FOR THE T.S. ELIOT PRIZE FOR POETRY 2020

A startlingly radical and surreal poetic journey, RENDANG takes the reader from West Sumatra to Planet Mongo via Gray’s Inn Road, alighting on Indonesian artefacts, gentrification, and citizenry. RENDANG is an urgent comment on what it means to be a person now, a dissection of and love letter to the histories, places, and things that make us.

Through adept and complex language play, a ludic voice, and a masterful command of form, Will Harris creates a poetry that charts the ambivalences, difficulties, and voices of our contemporary landscape.
