Author(s): Leni Dipple
In this volume, Leni Dipple explores how poetry might be represented in a range of contexts, cutting across cultures and languages. An esoteric collection designed for the serious reader of poetry, Between Rivers forms a simultaneously intricate and epic narrative inspired by the epistolary of Dipple’s grandfather and the work of Rainer Maria Rilke. This collection travels across time and continents, seeking its language and its roots, making connections, making sense of the present out of the past. Words are lifted from their origins, held to the light, and replanted in an eclectic and vibrant range of poems, synthesising Dipple’s many journeys and charged with a personal vitality.
