Norman Buller

Travelling Light – Waterloo Sampler No. 12 (2005)



Praise and Poems

Norman Buller’s distinctive, structured verse comes as a fresh and reassuring breeze of unpretentious relief in the post-modern, post-lyrical free-form powerplay of today’s poetry scene – one which often misdiagnoses a timeless attention to rhythm and form as symptomatic of retrogressive conventionality, whilst skirting over the importance of ‘the subject’. Buller is one poet who marries weighty relevance of subject with the occasionally traditional carriage of form to as strong an effect as the more fashionable experimentalists. An accessible erudition pervades this dexterity of form and rhythm, with an occasional nostalgic echo among perennial themes (‘The Mendips and Mrs. Cox’) and sporadic polemical surprises as in the wittily sardonic ‘Millenium Gig’ –
