A Kinder Sea is Felicity Plunkett’s masterpiece in the original sense of that term- the work that most fully expresses her gifts. This collection explores the sea as sanctuary, hoard and repository. It is composed of sequences- love letters, elegies, narratives and odes. Plunkett’s combination of intensity and range is rare, as is this collection’s formal precision and emotional directness. This is an exceptional collection- a break-out work for this gifted poet.
