Our Friday Poem this week is ‘Limousin, Lascaux’ by Jane Lovell, which appears in her pamphlet This Tilting Earth, winner of the 2018 Mslexia and Poetry Book Society Women’s Pamphlet Prize.
In This Tilting Earth, Jane Lovell’s poems are both beautiful and disturbing. A deep feeling for the natural world is aligned with an acute lyric sensibility, as well as a profound ethical awareness of our responsibility for the planet and the devastation of its landscapes and vulnerable species.
‘Jane Lovell’s poems are crafted with a jeweller’s precision. They make visceral connections with the wild in a language all of her own.’ –James Roberts
