As Far as I Can See
As Far as I Can See is a beautiful and moving collection from a prizewinning New Zealand poet. Leggott writes with passion, tenderness and courage about her deep sorrow at losing her sight. The sharpness of images so characteristic of Leggott and her wonderful ear for the musical sounds and rhythms and pauses of language reach a new poignancy, a tragic tension, in these poems.
More about Michele Leggott
As Far as I Can See is a verbal tour de force. Leggott stands on her own. There is no-one else writing so sensuously, heaping up linguistic treasures. – Janet Wilson, Evening Post
