Kitty Donnelly

The Impact of Limited Time

The poems in this prize-winning collection explore how the past exists alongside the present, from childhood to childbirth and from death to rebirth.

Some of these poems create a voice for those who have not been able to speak for themselves in history (including the housemaid of the baker on Pudding Lane and Pre-Raphaelite muse Lizzie Siddal).

From an invasive hospital procedure to the loneliness of single-parenthood, these narrators find beauty in the moment and within the context of their limited time.
