About the book

Book cover - archipelago by Adam Aitken.

His most personal poetry to date, Adam Aitken's Archipelago is entirely preoccupied with the experience of living and marrying in France. Much of it written while resident at the Keesing Studio in Paris, and then in the south during a seriously cold spring, many of the poems deal with art, romantic and modernist writing and writers, and concepts of nostalgia, spirituality, revolution and resistance.
