Stranger in the Mask of a Deer conjures an elemental, dreamlike narrative set in the Late-Upper Palaeolithic, as the British peninsula was gradually reoccupied by humans (and animals) returning from the greater continent after the Ice Age. Skelton began the poem many years ago with the intention of exploring the history of Britain's landscape, only for the text to transform into a kind of literary seance involving both human and other-than-human. 'An incredibly moving, essential meditation on where we have come from, where we are, and where we are headed.' -Kerri ní Dochartaigh
