Walking the Animals is a sort of travel book: it brings together inner and outer landscapes, the wet skies of the Pennines and the drought of the South African lowveld; landscapes of loss, landscapes of longing. Carola Luther tracks journeys between disparate worlds, between north and south, earth and air, fantasy and fact, the future, the present. Her poems explore dislocation and search, and the importance of relationship in establishing a sense of place.
In her first collection, Carola Luther makes a new kind of space in poetry, both impassioned and level-headed.
