A Sense of Place
Poems by Veronica Beedham

A Sense of Place (winner of the Overton Prize 2016) is a wide-ranging collection in which Veronica Beedham takes the reader from the chimney stacks of an old home to The Great Lakes, passing by landscapes from Yorkshire, a motorway service station and an evening in New England.

Single Girls Lies Hidden

£6.50

Description

This debut collection by Natalie Moores marks the emergence of a strong new voice in British poetry, and a powerful contribution to the #metoo moment.

“A coherent and accessible sequence. The poetry comes from a very personal place, but it is well-controlled and shaped into something linguistically and imagistically interesting. There’s a story throughout the whole sequence, from the great opening line to the image ‘sprawling through the dirt’ at the end.”

Carol Rowntree-Jones

“The irony of the title is of course that this sequence is the work of a poet who is refusing to hide. Moores uses her singular skill with language and poetic structure to deal with a subject that is painful. Reading 'the tears, the wrath and the aftermath' is also painful at times, but it should be. The sequence is a brilliant response to personal experience: sadly, it is also poetry that speaks to a shared experience.
