Kathleen McPhilemy Poetry
A Tented Peace
In A Tented Peace, McPhilemy sustains her view of the poet as witness. Even in her domestic poems, she is aware she inhabits 'a tented peace' in a world of violence and conflict.

'Important to stress how worthwhile this collection is.' - Stand
'An atmosphere of disquiet within the ordinary domestic settings expanded to accept the intrusion of the worldwide.' -- PQR
