Threshold (suite of poems) co-winner of Gwendolyn MacEwen Poetry Prize, June 2013.
Ambitious as John Berryman’s Homage to Mistress Bradstreet, “Threshold” unfolds with a quite opposite aesthetic: its words are as plain, bare and pregnant as the stones of a ruined croft. Vivid and particular in her own time and place, a silenced, exiled Hebridean poet speaks across three centuries to a world where everything has changed except the human dilemma of daring to think for oneself.
