Liardet, T (2011) The storm house. Carcanet, Manchester. ISBN 9781847770677
In 2006 Tim Liardet’s brother died in mysterious circumstances. 'The Storm House' is a book-length elegy that is both grief-fugue and exploration of family psychodrama. The two parts of the book form a powerful narrative of sorrow and anger, the events recollected in the first part extended by the virtuoso sonnet-sequence of the second. From uncertainty, trauma and silence, Liardet generates force and gravity in ‘the spring and leap / of energy’ that is the creative life owed to the dead.
