Carrying the Songs by Moya Cannon
Book Description"Carrying the Songs" explores what is lost to time and change, and what endures and is transformed: languages and landscapes, artefacts and songs, carried through a lifetime, across oceans, across centuries. A long-forgotten Gaelic word surfaces from childhood and is reanimated by use; a tiny Stone Age carving speaks across millennia of a shared human impulse to create. At the heart of this collection is migration, the rhythm that draws together the natural and the human worlds. Luminous and precise, Moya Cannon's poetry resonates like remembered songs. Included with the new poems in "Carrying the Songs" is a generous selection of the poems from Moya Cannon's much-praised earlier collections, "Oar and The Parchment Boat".
