Item description for from the field book by Carol Thistlethwaite...
"How do you get 'the jizz' on birds? The language of guidebooks is only a start; the language of poetry takes us further and especially when it's as crafted and innovative as the poetry of Carol Thistlethwaite. This is a collection that invites you into a particular world and does so with great success; a world of keen observation where language is achingly precise and lucid, pushed to the boundaries of observation. Here sound and shape combine to allow the reader 'that wordless leap', the moment of epiphany 'to recognition/jizz'." Jan Fortune-Wood "Carol Thistlethwaite's love of ornithology inspired this collection. Her acute observation and knowledge honed and shaped the contents to make each poem as individual as each bird." Les Merton "From the beginning, these poems get to the essence of human perception, but which enter - as much as is humanly possible - the consciousness of birds which are their focus. The delicacy of line and line-break enacts this, though sometimes it's the work of diction. Intense observation precedes translation into the most memorable of literary language." Robert Sheppard
