Jackie Kay: ‘Penny Boxall runs a tight ship. Her poems are beautifully crafted. Reading her is to go on an interesting journey of exploration – stopping at fascinating places along the way. She has a curator’s mind and is always putting one thing beside another in an unexpected way.’
Michael Laskey: ‘In this wide-ranging, generous and engaging collection, Penny Boxall brings the past vividly and urgently back to life. She takes us on a wonderfully surprising journey from a taxidermist’s, via the Grand Tour, ice hockey, the Age of Steam, a penny-farthing, a balloon flight, to end up with a deafening beetle buried for years in her grandfather’s ear.’
The lookout hails
into the weather.
We hear no words
but catch his meaning
Halt! Who Goes There? Penny Boxall’s second collection throws light on the mysterious strangers we glimpse, and turns that same light on ourselves. From shadows lost to history to forgotten possessions and our own past identities, these poems consider questions of selfhood and the ways in which we can be peripheral in our own lives.
Purchase Ship of the Line here and Who Goes There? here, and simply enter the code SONNET6 into the promotion code field during check-out to purchase the above books (separately or together) at 30% off!
