The dark skies of the Yorkshire Pennines and the heat of the South African lowlands are brought together in these masterpieces from a transitional poet. Journeys between disparate worlds—between north and south, earth and air, safety and danger, fantasy and fact—traverse poetic landscapes of loss and longing. Dislocations and what flows from them, how the strange emerges into familiarity, and how strangers, in time, become known provide the thematic backdrops for this poet's exploration of place and movement.

Industry Reviews

'Walking the Animals marks the arrival of a wonderful new poet. Carola Luther's poems are startlingly original, sensual and true, with imagery as tangible as the world it makes new for us. Her sense of place, and of the unbreakable connections between our inner and outer worlds, is remarkable, and the rich language of the poems is sourced not only in integrity, but in a sense of love. Read her' Carol Ann Duffy
