Fusewire has the fierce historical awareness and linguistic energy of Ruth Padel's previous collections but moves into new territory and new clarity. Poems on British activity in Ireland through the ages intrude on an intensely moving series of love poems which reverse sexual clichés of colonisation: here Britain is female and Ireland the high-profile man.From the prize-winning poet of Rembrandt Would Have Loved You,Voodoo Shop and The Soho Leopard, all shortlisted for the T.S. Eliot Prize.
