Vahni Capildeo Poetry Workshop on 'Bemonstering'
Vahni Capildeo’s books are No Traveller Returns (2003), Undraining Sea (2009), Dark and Unaccustomed Words (2012), Utter (2013), Simple Complex Shapes (Shearsman, 2015), Measures of Expatriation (2016), which won the 2016 Forward Prize and Venus as a Bear (Carcanet, forthcoming 2018).
Her work is infused with ‘the sense of coexistent distance-in-presence, presence-in-distance’ which she characterises as typical of electronic communication today, while showing ‘how travellers carry elsewhen as well as elsewhere in their heart.’
