Woman Listening by Paddy Webb
Finalist for The QSPELL Prize for Poetry in 1991
These imaginative poems stir the senses, conjuring up a wealth of images that trace a woman’s emotional and psychological development. Through the subtle use of natural imagery, Paddy Webb plunges into the depths of human happiness and heartache, letting her sense of pain, anger and, perhaps, terror emerge from her metaphors. At the same time, these poems are a celebration of life. A serious, talented writer, producing richly textured modern poetry which will give pleasure to all readers sensitive to the music of its language and to its finely crafted, powerful messages.
