Description

"Here is a poet well-travelled in worlds both exterior and interior. Abandoned Gardens is a powerful and essential distillation from this poet's three collections, plus a substantial volume of new work. Locales range from the poet's native America, to her family roots in Greece, and to the UK. Letting go of places and people is a key theme. Unflinching, engaged, observant, authentic, these poems consider the ways in which exile and displacement, caused by the ruthlessness of historical events, impact on our lives. Nothing could be more relevant at the present moment. This, and other subjects, are scrupulously delineated in poems that hold their nerve, whose focus is unsparing, insightful and immediate. Alongside an often rueful clarity there is much wit, fluidity of language, restrained lyricism, and a skilful and varied use of form." - Penelope Shuttle
