Her verse is not overly poetic or romantic, but conveys a powerful sense of seeing through someone else's eyes, a sense of place, a sense of a particular time or moment. Morrissey is part of the modern world, where information is constantly bombarding us, through all kinds of media -- we learn about her own domestic life, family and politics through the lens of some of these external events, past and present. She refers at the back to her sources of inspiration for 6 of the poems: each source is fascinating and the poems made me want to research them further.
