Product Overview

Elizabeth Macklin is a poet of the city. Her subjects are everywhere: inside apartment houses and alongside towering buildings, on streets and sidewalks, or beneath them, at the water's edge and in the changing heavens. How are we to survive in such a place? What shall we feel? "The question today is jellyfish in the river - why transparent beings are not invisible. Why would somebody want power?" Here the large questions are posed, the small joys celebrated. "Here a loving sky's come out a deep clear blue". From beginning to end, in her able hands, through her painterly eye and rich vision, the odd scraps of urban life are converted into a sort of Platonic dialogue of fruitful enigmas, paradoxes, and playful epiphanies.
