«Moyra Donaldson's poetry has grown to ignite unexpected perceptions and magnify them. Betrayals, personal and political; excavations, historical and psychic; correspondences of temperament and object; innocences pristine and varied and very much in power. The Goose Tree shows a poet treading on her own footprints; the considerable themes of her career advanced in perspective and colour and with the happy skills of a poet both accomplished and mature but alert still to surprise, both in form and substance: like her 'village women who waited/In their beds for the sound of wings'. A joyous collection.» – Damian Smyth Moyra Donaldson's work has been hailed as 'urbane, modern, and sophisticated . . . ambitious in its scope, and speaking with a rare authority.' Whatever the subject matter – be it anatomy, death, life, sex, or the natural world – Donaldson writes with a keen knowledge of the connection between the private and the public, the past and the present, the local and the universal. A masterful new collection from one of Ireland's leading poets.
