Book Description:

Pauline Stainer is a poet 'working at the margins of the sacred', conveying sensations 'with an economy of means that is breathtaking... her poems are not merely artefacts, they have an organic life of their own' (John Burnside). In her fifth collection, Parable Island, she evokes the spareness and luminosity of the land and seascapes of the Orkneys in poems which inhabit an imaginative borderland inspired by her 'visceral Muse'.
