Eve Complains to God
About the book…
Complains to God; Janet Shepperson’s long-awaited follow up to her debut volume
The Aphrodite Stone (1995), sees the
Belfast-based poet moving with her accustomed lyric skill across the domestic
and intimate landscapes.
Whether writing of conundrums and paradoxes of family, motherhood or belonging she brings to her material an eye for the details of the everyday, balanced with an all-too-rare critical intelligence. It produces a poetry that speaks both with colloquial ease and artistic authority. Rigorously grounded in the particular a person, a place, a memory her poems reach out to a wider understanding of life.
Eve Complains to God shows a poet coming fully into her own.
