Parallax: Sinéad Morrissey
Irish poet Sinéad Morrissey has recently won the prestigious TS Eliot Prize for Poetry for her latest collection Parallax.
This is Sinéad Morrissey's latest offering. "This is a book of meticulous craft and thought...eminently readable and re-readable" Times Literary Supplement.
In Parallax Sinéad Morrissey documents what is caught, and what is lost, when houses and cityscapes, servants and saboteurs are arrested in time by photography or poetry, being subjected to the authority of a particular perspective.
Assured and disquieting, Morrissey's poems explore the paradoxes in what is seen, read and misread in the surfaces of the presented world. In August 2013 Sinead Morrissey was made the Poet Laureate of Belfast.
