Kate Lilley, Round Vienna
Kate Lilley’s first collection Versary was published by Salt in 2002. John Tranter commented, “What Kate Lilley gives us is the richness and vigour of the English Renaissance in the service of a complex set of postmodern concerns; scholarship as a handmaiden to art; and literature galvanised by passion. What we get is an alert, sharp-edged contemporary poetry, electric with allusion and irony, compulsively readable.” Her second full-length collection is due later in 2011 from Salt Publishing but in the meantime Vagabond Press is thrilled to have the chance to bring out Round Vienna, a limited-edition illustrated chapbook of new poems in which Lilley takes the reader on a leisured stroll along the bifurcations and aporias of psychoanalysis with the erudition and perfect pitch that makes her work endlessly re-readable and equally pleasurable.
