Venus in Pink Marble

Gaynor Kane

Poetry

Kane's poems are Ulster poems; authentic, lived. As readers we are inside the poems, part of a narrative distinctly of place, of community, and of the familial. Days out, work, ancestry, landscape; these things are peopled with the weight of history and happenstance.

 

Maria McManus, author of Available Light (Arlen House), We are Bone (Lagan Press), The Cello Suites(Lagan Press) and Reading the Dog (Lagan Press).

 

Kane takes the reader on an honest journey through her own personal history and experiences. It is at once powerful and far reaching, unafraid to tackle big political themes or to offer a tender and loving exploration of family and relationships.

 

Eileen Carney Hulme, author of Stroking the Air (Bluechrome), The Space Between Rain (Indigo Dreams) and The Stone Messenger (Indigo Dreams)
