I have really enjoyed Brown's work previously - books such as Of Science written with David Morley and his pamphlet with the Heaventree Press, The Trust Territory. I loved this book too. The detail of nature in the poems is great - you can really tell that Brown studied Ecology. I particularly like 'A Miscellany of Birds', 'Blue Tits' and 'Audubon Becomes Obsessed with Birds'. ( )

The natural world viewed with haunted but open eyes. Movements through seas, stories, hearts. The silence within the storm. A welter of words with peace at its core. ( )

Book description
From the Salt website:

Main description: Fall of the Rebel Angels: Poems 1996-2006 brings together the best of Andy Brown’s poems from the first ten years of his publications. Through his light-touch exploration of our sense of selves, public and private, Brown’s work explores ideas of ‘relationship’ in its widest senses –

* the ecology of the natural world and our relationship to it
* the intimacy and intricacies of personal relationships
* the relationships between language and experience, memory, imagination and reality

Informed by philosophies of Critical Realism, Brown’s poetry explores pertinent environmental and philosophic ideas, combining ontological inquiry with accessible lyric language and form, subtle humour, and a direct engagement with the ‘thing-ness’ of the world.
Haiku summary
