The six sequences of “There Is an Anger that Moves” travel from Jamaica to England and back. A mother’s heart is broken; men fall in love secretly; people dance until they die. Religion haunts these disbelieving poems which move sometimes to the measure of a hymn, sometimes to the cadence of a Baptist sermon. Each swells with its own conviction, even when that conviction is doubt. Miller makes us believe in the power of unexpected things: the colour orange, broken coffins, ice cream – and in the transforming power of poetry. From this book, Kei Miller emerges as one of the most compelling and subtle new voices from the Caribbean.
