By the way (Sept '13), Neil Astley's author photo on the back doesn't really do justice to her vibrancy. Like Margaret Atwood or a fine Gevrey-Chambertin, she is aging superbly. Oh to hear her vibrant tones take on the very first poem here: 'even the cactus flower/glows briefly golden'
This comprehensive collected takes us from the slightly contrived air of classicism that pervades her early work, through the more flowing and natural style that emerged in 1979s The Inner Harbour to the beauties of her later work, where technique is all but hidden behind an almost sublime sense of imagary and characters...

Highly recommended to poetry lovers.
As I like to read during my daily commute or in a cafe, I did not particularly care for the large format of the edition.
