The design of a coin is an act of succinct aggrandisement. Bare George explores the coinage of power through a far more famous numismatic image: created in 1817 for King George III and his son, the Prince Regent, by celebrity gem designer Benedetto Pistrucci (1784-1855), it pictures a saint, young St. George, lancing a dragon. He is undressed. Any Greek warrior of artistic relevance to the nineteenth century would be. The dragon is submitting, as the opposition needs to be shown to do.
Claire Crowther has published three full-length collections with Shearsman. All attracted wide attention, and the first, Stretch of Closures, was shortlisted for the Aldeburgh first-collection prize. She was poet-inresidence at the Royal Mint Museum for 2014-15 and lives in Somerset with her husband, physicist Keith Barnham.
A collection of poems that combines a control of rhetoric with myth-making skill. It includes figures such as the yellow-furred thike and its human cousin, or the countrywoman who answers the call of Maleficence.
