Periplum Poetry - Light Site by Vahni Capildeo

Light site



Vahni Capildeo’s pamphlet Light Site presents a variety of ‘expanded translations’, poems after Eugène Ionesco and Pierre de Ronsard, amongst others. Notes on the texts are published alongside the poems: ‘Pierre de Ronsard’s poems were among the most memorable and musical texts which I read silently and aloud, and which I heard recited by my mother, during my growing up in Port of Spain…’

Vahni Capildeo is Writer in Residence at the University of York and Contributing Editor at PN Review. Their books have won the Forward Prize and been shortlisted for the TS Eliot prize, amongst other awards and honours, and include Simple Complex Shapes (Shearsman 2015), Measures of Expatriation (Carcanet 2016), Venus as a Bear (Carcanet 2018), Skin Can Hold (Carcanet 2019), and Odyssey Calling (Sad Press, 2020).
