Marked by reflectiveness and mature insight, O'Meara's keen sense of lyric structure and subtle cadences explore in contexts both historical and personal the tension between established knowledge and discovery - the centre and horizon of our unfixed selves. These poems - ambitious, rooted, exuberant and controlled, informed by a certain restlessness - unfold in evocative tones of voice to propel a narrative at one intelligent and charismatic, far-ranging yet focussed. A remarkable debut.

Editorial Reviews

"The variety of forms and modes - narrative, lyrical, sequence, free verse, sonnet and so on - and the echoes of such mentors as Crane, Rilke, Heaney and Romantic poets generally, are a sure sign of a growing talent."
- Dan Reeve, THE DANFORTH REVIEW
