Where the Dead Walk

Where the Dead Walk

By Angela Kirby



"Where the Dead Walk is a compelling collection of heartfelt poems that, for the most part, beautifully evoke an era in England now gone. Nostalgia, regret and celebration are all involved and the telling images from that era make these vignettes spring to life. Angela Kirby's voice is direct, unadorned, the tone serious and occasionally playful, even with surprising punch lines. She shows with a refreshing candour the pain of relationships going wrong, of dementia, of old age, the grief of losing a loved one yet the consolation that those once loved, even if deceased, are somehow still with her. She is clever and playful at times with satire, self-mockery and colloquial speech, unafraid to demonstrate at the same time her classical and literary learning. In general this is a charming, tender, delicate yet strong collection. The series of poems on disparate themes somehow seem sewn together by the silver needle of a poet who knows her craft and whose lines are true." - Patricia McCarthy
