• ‘Intriguing and compelling’
  • In her new collection We Have to Leave the Earth, Carolyn Jess-Cooke deftly interweaves the personal and the political. Climate change is confronted in a sequence about the Arctic; poems that are vividly descriptive of an extreme landscape, sensitive to the effects of global warming. A second sequence, ‘The House of Rest’, is a history in 9 poems of Josephine Butler, (1828-1906) a pioneering feminist activist. There are also tender poems about family and mental health. Available now.
