ABOUT Interval (UQP, March 2018)

“Judith Bishop’s new book reveals the very essence of lyricism. It flows forward from Kinderlieder to magical evocations of place and scape. The poems here are musically so subtle that they evoke silence, and pay court to the pages’ snowy whitenesses. In them, she ranges from deep intimacy to seeing “as the astronaut does,/the body of the earth/ lying whole and resplendent.”  - Chris Wallace-Crabbe

 "in the beauty of birth is the muteness of our isness on a planet we're destroying,
and this paradox drives the book in a committed and deeply intelligent way."
- John Kinsella
