Harvard Review Online review of Glasshouses

‘The landscape of memory, as captured in Barnes’s collection, is not a flat surface on which easy markers are sprinkled, but a forested space with lush recollections that—in themselves—are mirrors of observed realities. … The poems in Glasshouses […] do not engage by way of commentary, but through a controlled formation of the environments that demand the reader’s intellectual investment.’

Warm thanks to Timothy Ogene—whose first novel The Day Ends Like Any Day launches 4 May, The Book Hive, Norwich—for this terrific, thoughtful review of Glasshouses.
