More Description

'A contained dynamism infuses Cahill's taut, muscular poems.' - Luke Davies 'A strong book. Her images are surprising and spiritual.' - Susan Hampton 'Elegant meditations on freedom and entrapment, desire and restriction. They canvass a broad geographical, intellectual and emotional range, and are memorable for their resonant combinations of words. Cahill is clearly in love with language. Her poems demonstrate acute awareness of its power to bring people together or to keep them apart.' - Michael Sharkey 'Spectacular, imagistic, important, subtle. Cahill's book connects the lights, roots, lilies, gulls and bamboo shoots of the self (inner space) with those of nature. It's interesting to see how the gnarled chaos of the speakers of the poems confronts the qualities within herself mirrored in the outside world. The poems become, then, a kind of metronomic dialogue between self and comment, when the important questions are revealed.' - Sean Singer (winner of the Yale Series of Younger Poets)
