Of Sea

Elizabeth-Jane Burnett

"Innovative, dazzling, affecting poems that shimmer with intellectual acuity and emotional resonance."

Rebecca Tamás

A remarkable new book in praise of marine fauna, Of Sea takes the form of a poetic bestiary of creatures living beneath, beside and above the water: in wetlands, salt marshes and the intertidal zone.

In a sequence of 46 poems, Burnett captures the world of cockles and clams, rare moths and the humble earwig (to name a few) with a precise and dynamic lyric that seems always on the verge of music.

Reviews

Innovative, dazzling, affecting poems that shimmer with intellectual acuity and emotional resonance.
Rebecca Tamás

[Burnett's] stunning new collection explores the sea - its creatures, sounds, language. Many pieces are meant to be sung, or clicked (like a beetle) and it cumulates into an epic maritime lyric.
Sinéad Gleeson
