699: Felicity Plunkett: A Kinder Sea

This book explores the sea as sanctuary, hoard and repository. Composed of sequences – love letters, elegies, narratives and odes – it looks outwards from the intimate to take in others’ lives and voices, remaking form and craft. Felicity Plunkett’s remarkable poems balance wrack and loss with vitality, resilience and beauty.

“I run as fast as ink but we are both dissolving: / when I reach you, we become a corner of the sea.”
