Ahren Warner's first book-length collection is one of the most talked about debuts in the poetry world of recent years. Still in his mid 20s, Ahren Warner's innovative, highly musical poetry has already influenced the work not just of his contempories but of better-known older poets. Poetry Book Society Recommendation. Confer is a book between two cities - London and Paris - with detours via rural and small-town England, drunkenness and death camps in Bavaria, the American absurd and the lost libraries of the Roman Empire. It contains love and lust poems, variations on Baudelaire and conversations with Nietzsche and Auden. This impressive debut collection by a young poet already well-known for his innovative, highly musical poetry draws its energy from an interplay between melody and intellect. Ahren Warner's poems seek to amplify the effect of our common experiences and to attenuate the everyday within a matrix of philosophy and art, language and its intervals. Poetry Book Society Recommendation.
