The Sets reviewed by Reid’s Reader

A thorough and rigorous review of The Sets by Nicholas Reid on Reid’s Reader (an abridged version appeared in the Listener on 6 February 2021)

The collection’s Prologue “The Sets” presents the sea as daunting and as the centre of Billot’s own personal mythology, the place to which he returns for many of his most significant images. This opening poem places human beings in the context of nature that is wild, fearsome but oddly beautiful.
