About this title

From Booklist:

Another fine, young poet from Ireland shows in her first book an unusually certain, fully formed, and mature voice. Her territory is the familiar domesticity of women's lives, and she is as comfortable with the tenderness of married love as she is with a young rural girl's yearning for experience beyond her province. Some of the most affecting poems here record Hardie's ongoing struggle with a debilitating physical condition and what she calls the "ancient practice" of healing effort. "Human times are mostly hard," she says calmly. "They will be so again." Self-regarding without self-pity, Hardie examines the struggles of the soul to live free and love strongly, whatever the limitations of body and society. Patricia Monaghan
