“In view of its technical accomplishment, the assurance of voice, and especially the bold pursuit of difficult themes, it is astonishing to reflect that this is Lovell’s first collection.
The language is somehow spare and simple yet dazzlingly original. Lovell has issued a powerful manifesto both for the importance of nature and for herself as a major poet.”
Mark Cocker, Author and naturalist
“These poems are a series of hauntings. Sensory, porous, poignant in its truest sense, their painful, sudden beauty and physicality becomes embodied organically. As Seamus Heaney said, they come at you sideways, “and catch the heart off guard, and blow it open.”
This is just what poetry should do. Lovell is a great poet, her lines capture all it means to be human, present and in touch with the wild.”
Miriam Darlington, Author of ‘Owl Sense’
