About this title:

Synopsis:

“There is nobody writing prose poetry in any way close to Lucy Hamilton’s. Of Heads & Hearts is an intricate and rich collection that riffs on the interconnectedness of human relationships with the deft movements of a musical score. Here is a poet writing at the height of her talent using precise and controlled language to build toward a cumulative collage of characters, threads and associations all in conversation with one another. Of Heads & Hearts becomes more and more rewarding with each re-reading, most notably the utter ache at the heart of the ‘Requiem for the Engineer’ sequence.” —Kaddy Benyon

“With each new story, this collection extends its reach and increases its hold on the reader. The work of the poet here is not to claim authority over a series of elusive moments but to curate their collection. Eclectic, absorbing, tender and funny, the poems testify to the mind’s restlessness and its inventive responses to the world.” —Lucy Sheerman

About the Author: Lucy Hamilton was born in Sheringham, Norfolk, the youngest of six children (including the four and a half minutes between her twin sister and herself). Her mother was born in Paris and grew up in Toulouse (of Catholic and Jewish heritage) and her father grew up in Liverpool. She left school at seventeen and lived in Paris for two years before returning to continue her education. She worked as a teacher in many parts of the UK before getting married and settling in Cambridge where she was Head of Year at a local comprehensive and, for a time, simultaneously Acting Head of the Languages Faculty. She later worked with international students at an independent school in Kent. In 2010 she moved back to Cambridge where she now works as a freelance tutor. Her poems and translations have appeared in many journals including Modern Poetry in Translation, The Rialto, Shearsman and Poetry Wales. Her first collection, Stalker, was shortlisted for the Forward prizes' Felix Dennis Award for Best First Collection in 2012. Lucy co-edits Long Poem Magazine.
