Map Reading For Beginners

By Deborah Harvey

Poetry | Paperback


An authentic sense of travelling through history as well as through the complexities and ironies of place illuminate this confident new collection. Deborah Harvey’s use of language is clean and fresh, and she draws with energy and purpose on archival material, such as the records of the Bristolian topographer William Wyrcestre mapping the city in 1480, or the wreck of the SS Nornen off Berrow Flats in 1897. Her voice remains however contemporary and deeply responsive to the beauty and vulnerability of the natural world. Highly-recommended. Penelope Shuttle
