Dinah Livingstone
Embodiment
Poetry. 61 pages. £10. ISBN 9780904872491

Paperback book or pdf file (same price).

Embodiment, Dinah Livingstone's tenth poetry collection, has two parts. Part I 'Voices' listens to many speakers, both living and dead, real and fictional, from a close neighbour to an exile from Earth on an exoplanet. As well as humans, there are grammatical great tits and a talking fox. Part 2 has the title sequence 'Embodiment' and more on the pain and pleasure of our life as an animal with imagination.

From reviews:

'I canít think of anyone who isnít going to adore this slim book of poems... Did I forget to say that these poems are also very funny?' -- Progressive Voices

'This is the voice of lived experience, and a lifetime's devotion to the craft of making poems, informed by a unity of political belief and theology... One last thing... I am pleased to say that Embodiment, like all Katabasis books, is a properly printed and handsome book with an attractive and distinctive look.' -- London Grip

'Although it could be described as mellower than some of her other work, this is a collection in which Livingstone continues to observe, celebrate and strive.' --Tears in the Fence

'These poems of Dinah Livingstone are full of simple, contemplative observation coupled with unadorned yet penetrating expression. They touch on the one thing which makes us unique: our story with its moments terribly ordinary and ordinarily terrible. Take and read.' -- Renew
