Illuminations

Mark Wilson

loneliness 
Illuminations is a visionary poem in a hundred sections which levitates the reader from the blindness of modern avarice to the scintillating light of an imagined paradiso. Taking inspiration and luminous cues from Ezekiel, Dante, Blake, Rimbaud, Pound, Celan and Hill, Mark Wilson creates a disarmingly new liturgy which seethes with humorous paradox, semantic invention and startling curiosity. Illuminations is certainly a 21st Century antidote to those destructive twin-forces of global capitalism and religious fundamentalism. It is also a timely canticle for future linguistic contemplation, allowing the mind to envision both the luminosity and wellbeing of the individual quester hoping to live within a far more light receptive community.

(Wilson's) books mark a new kind of redemptive excitation not seen in British poetry for a long time — Andrew O'Donnell.
