In Eve Esfandiari-Denney’s My Bodies This Morning This Evening we see the body in so many states—ranging from survival to affection—that it achieves a sense of the elusive. Like water, Esfandiari-Denney’s poems move and seep into the gaps that exist between ourselves and the languages that define us. Holding together this remarkable debut pamphlet is a poetic that, in its plurality, is able to cross and recross borders, taking with it sisters, mothers, lovers and past selves. Here, voices are always moving beyond a single narrative, beyond the individual or certain, where it makes sense to say: “Your life are one”.

Eve Esfandiari-Denney is the current UEA Birch Family scholar and author of My Bodies This Morning This Evening, Bad Betty Press, 2022. Her poems have featured in The Poetry ReviewBath Magg, Prototype’s annual anthology and The Manchester Reviewamong others. She was shortlisted for The White Review Poets Prize 2021.
