bind by Christine Murray


ISBN: 978-0-9957916-4-0

bind:  a waking book is a daring, experimental meditation on the natural world throughout the year, in the course of a single day, from day-break to dusk. The poet’s magical, mysterious lines draw the reader into an interior world conveyed by delicate, startling images. These are not separate poems but rather, a single, book-length poem set out in fragments that are bound together by the poet’s unique sensibility and her intriguing use of punctuation and space.

“These elegant, impressionistic poems work with a fractured landscape, one that will haunt and engage the reader. The wing of a bird, a black crystal, a willow tree – in the brief, taut language of the poems these references begin as words and end as codes. They gesture towards mysteries and secrets, and the feelings that are an archive for both. Chris Murray writes with grace and lyric thrift and her poems will remain in the reader’s memory long after they have caught the reader’s attention.       Eavan Boland
