NICOLA BOWERY - 'married to this ground'

'married to this ground' is the most recent poetry collection by Nicola Bowery. It was launched by Meredith McKinney on Saturday 14th June, 2014 in Braidwood NSW.

 

In married to this ground, her third poetry collection, Nicola Bowery’s core interest is to evoke a geography of marriage. She writes from a wide plateau landscape but her focus is the texture and grain of daily life, inherent drama (and comedy) in relationship, the interplay of psychic and physical terrain.

Bowery’s language in these poems seems the perfect vehicle for the task she sets herself: to find poetry in immediate experience and in the ‘ordinary’. Intimate and spacious, the poems offer a distinctive sense of having been long distilled in the ground they arise from. At the same time there’s a compelling cumulative power in the work, a vigour and accessibility that will draw the reader into Bowery's world.

Price $20. Includes free postage within Australia.

Reader's review, Nicola Bowery's 'married to this ground'
In married to this ground, Nicola Bowery’s latest collection of wonderfully alive poems, she invites us into her writing space and to the piece of earth where she lives, which she writes about with a very fine acuteness and sensitivity.

She also invites us into her marriage, where with humour and courage, she takes us into that edgy, true territory of an enduring and passionate relationship.

Her language is supple and strong and at times tender too. She clearly loves the things she observes and understands so well. There’s a freshness and assuredness to these poems, such that every time I return to them, they remind me of how good it is to be alive.
