Sarah Crown reviews Will Stone?s ?Glaciation? in The Guardian
Consolation is hard to come by in
‘s universe. His view of humanity, present as enfeebled victims or pitiless murderers, is grim, religion provides little in the way of solace … But there is real pleasure to be taken in Stone’s potent depictions of nature’s might. In the title poem, written after Shelley’s “Mont Blanc”, his likening of a glacier’s “monstrous plaster limb of ice” to “a snake slowed by feeding / … shackled, relentless” offers a fittingly sublime tribute to its predecessor.
