A moving, honest and never sentimental collection that gives a voice to London s many war memorials.

In her second poetry collection Caroline Davies turns her attention to the War Memorials of London. Voices from Stone and Bronze brings to life those who fought and died and those who survived, including some of the sculptors who had themselves come through trench warfare to a changed world.

Meticulously researched and deeply humane, these narrative poems apply a lyrical sensibility without sentimentalism; a deeply affective collection.

” Caroline Davies is writing poetry like no one else’s, embedded in shared, lived history. Her poems are quiet, direct, understated, and full of restrained power and emotional depth. Very moving, beautifully written, and unique in contemporary British poetry, this sequence deserves attention.”
