Literary collections


by
Colette Bryce

Book Details

Format: EPUB

Page count: 48 pages

Protection: DRM

Language: English

Colette Bryce’s first collection is a book of songs: songs of kinship and desire, Ireland and Spain, of myth and belief. Bryce’s sensuous and sinuous verse follows the convoluted lines of fate and political divide, and turns on questions of love and faith – the poet’s relentlessly clarifying sense leaving them strengthened or shaken. In its insistent music – whatever dark and surreal turns it might take – Bryce’s poetry is ultimately a celebration of singing and of singing out, for its own sake. The Heel of Bernadette announces one of the most unusual and distinctive voices to have emerged from Northern Ireland for a generation.
