"Overwintering" is coming through, emerging into the light of a new season.
Pippa Little's book explores what survives and grows from the dark energies of winter, night and loss, from the buried past and the imagination's depths.
Landscapes speak of ancient violences and hold the hope of resolution.
Love survives; the richness of the world replenishes.
Little's poems have a sensual delight in qualities of light and texture, in imagined realities and the fantastical real. 'Hope is winter light,' she writes, 'is day arriving, numb and slow.'
