There are several long poems and series poems in this collection that are almost novelistic in scope. The poems are varied in length and form, but the long poems predominate and give the book a substance and weight that I am not finding often in contemporary poems. There's a lot to think about in this book and to return to.
Colette Colfer
Another beautiful and studied collection from Paula Meehan. Quite a lot of musings on mortality and changing landscapes as well as sketches of raw scenes from the past that powerfully evoke the impact and intensity of the events - including an eviction and a near-death. And again the hint of a mix of pagan and Catholic images and words.
