Review: ‘RENDANG’ by Will Harris

Research output: Other contribution


To understand Will Harris’s RENDANG, I keep coming back to the poem ‘The White Jumper’, which appears at the end of the collection’s first section. It’s a poem of fragments, puzzle-pieces which expand to bear meaning on the rest of the poems in subtle, complex ways. The poem opens with a figure ‘running and jumping from one grassing / platform to another’; there is a ‘beam of light’, as though someone is searching for this person, who repeats the phrase ‘The white jumper’; it’s not clear who (or what) they’re referring to.
