Kerry Hardie interviews & poem features from Where Now Begins

'Kerry Hardie's Where Now Begins is full of a dark, exact lyricism... These, certainly, are poems which speak skilfully to (and from) our times.' - Seán Hewitt, The Irish Times

 

Irish poet Kerry Hardie's eighth collection Where Now Begins will be published by Bloodaxe Books on 12 November 2020. These poems bear witness to the cycles of growth and decay that make up our lives. They are the work of a poet writing with an awareness of the seasonal circle closing, for the year and for herself.
