Without polemic or rant, Kate Noakes explores the themes of environmental damage and renewal. She uses imagined narratives to suggest our options to repair the planet and relearn how to live in harmony with it. This is poetry of subtlety, rich in its song and imagery. Central to the book is a sequence retelling one of the stories from Ovid’s Metamorphoses from a woman’s point of view.
