Dharmakaya: ’Truth-body’, a beautiful and evocative word from the Tibetan Book of the Dead. This new collection marks a decisive development in her work both in formal and thematic terms.

In her new book, Paula Meehan looks at how memory is lodged in the body, in physical consciousness, as much as in the old movies we run inside our heads.

There is a paradoxical intimacy about Meehan's poetry: the voice can be quiet, even private, but the private world erupts or is broken open by the public world, its violence, its insistent issues.

Nothing is given outright: hope and love have to be tested and tried; so does loss, which is never all loss.
