'Fiona Sampson's voice is something new and it's a delight to hear it . . . A joy to read' W S Merwin

'Numinous musicality remains a hallmark of Fiona Sampson's poetry. Come Down traces the meeting points of our fleeting human lives and the shifting timelessness of the world that surrounds us' Ben Wilkinson, Guardian

Questions of humanity, of point of view, are at the heart of Fiona Sampson's new collection of poetry, Come Down. Throughout the collection, Sampson's poems shimmer between the human perspective, and what is beyond - some larger, longer-term consciousness. In each poem, language runs and dances over the stuff of the human body and the material of the landscape. And yet, despite these radical perspective shifts, the collection keeps in sight, always, the human experience: the act of creation; the way in which childhood memory and family lore impinge on the present. The collection ends with a long, eponymous poem, which moves fluidly and brilliantly through different forms of memory.

Fiona Sampson has published twenty-nine books, most recently a critically acclaimed biography
In Search of Mary Shelley (2018), and received a number of national and international awards for poetry. A Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, she's received an MBE for services to literature, and been published in thirty-seven languages. She now lives in an old farm in a valley on the Welsh borders.
