Almost the Equinox free pdf This is a Poetry Book Society Special Commendation. Sarah Maguire's first collection, Spilt Milk, established her as one of the most original voices in British poetry, and led to her being chosen as one of the New Generation Poets. Three critically acclaimed volumes have since followed - The Invisible Mender, The Florist's at Midnight and The Pomegranates of Kandahar - to form a lucid, lyrical and rich body of work remarkable for its intelligence and artistry. This welcome selection of Maguire's poems spans time and continents - from the 'bare flanks' of the Thames at low tide to the night streets of Marrakech - bringing us the sights and sounds of distant lands, as well as taking us to the very heart of human feeling. Verdant in imagery and imagination, this is poetry of extraordinary precision and power - fully attuned to 'that precious music, / the pitch of flesh / on flesh'.
