Crossing Point

Myra Schneider

Crossing Point

Myra Schneider writes, "The overall theme [of this collection] is women. 'Mother and Daughter', the core sequence... recreates the life of my grandmother and the earlier life of my mother, drawing on information my mother gave me... A shorter sequence looks at the life of my mother-in-law, a refugee, and the circumstances which shaped her life.

Spectrum-Shift

Isobel Thrilling

Spectrum-Shift

Isobel Thrilling's work is characterised by free verse, an extreme economy of language and piercing moments of insight. There are poems here which deal uncompromisingly with illness, loss and family relationships. Others set the human in a wider evolutionary context. Some are the expression of the sheer joy of living. Whatever the subject, the dedication and craftsmanship of a highly individual artist are always very much to the fore.

Rattling the Handle

Patricia Pogson

Rattling the Handle

"Maybe for once a blurb is right: it talks about Pogson's poems confronting "the world in all its baffling inconsequentiality, absurdity and cruelty" and I can't really do better than that except to say that the poems are always full of humanity, and nowhere is Pogson sniggering at any of the predicaments we find ourselves in."
