Kathleen Bainbridge opens a private box in her first collection Inscape. Memories of loss, desire, entrapment and escape, feature as pivotal moments on a spiritual journey. Her poems, brilliantly executed, have a bravura of disenchantment like wise-cracking after disappointment. But life is more deeply heartfelt and romance is her counterweight. It is stronger, enduring, lays down its beauty in each line and each regret. It’s the pulse of her muse, the poet Lorca, who advises: ‘tu corazón caliente, nada más’ (your warm heart, nothing more).

“Her poems have an alluring, subtly charged music, a command of significant detail and an understanding that the poem’s task may be less to explain than to invoke.” — Sean O’Brien

“Reading these tender and compelling poems is a road trip through the heart’s wild places, where ‘losing goes on forever’… the passionate spirit of duende is gentled by reflection in the rear-view mirror of memory.”” — Linda France
