Between Here And There: Sinéad Morrissey
In her second book of poems Sinéad Morrissey’s worlds grow more diverse, encompassing the Orient, the Antipodes, America and an Ireland which recent history has changed and yet not deeply.
Robust, surprising and technically accomplished, Between Here and There builds towards the critically-acclaimed Japanese sequence featured in New Poetries II.
Avoiding the better-travelled paths of the Zen / Haiku traditions in Western poetry, Morrissey instead explores a world of heavy industry, environmental damage, disaffected schoolchildren and a traditional village culture vibrant with raw sexual energy.
