This debut collection from Sam Morley comprises poetry that is image-rich, probing and sublime. Committed to observation as a vehicle for discovery, Earshot is a book-length meditation deep in the mystery of the domestic sphere and the natural world. The poems are often profoundly personal while somehow removed, rippling out from Morley’s unique inner perceptions into something universal and large. Pictures and diction progress with a
distinctively strenuous, yet fluent movement – these are poems which deliver more in a few lines than many poems deliver in their entirety.
