Earthworks brings together eighteen poems whose subjects are nurtured and nourished by, and eventually brought back to, earth and the myths surrounding it.
‘This wonderful sequence of poems cuts into the earth beneath the thin layer of soil to articulate a voice that knots life to death. Gabbitas’s language is vital, visceral, having its effect directly in our body and brings the reader in contact with the raw reality of life. This is profoundly moving poetry that repays re-reading and bearing close to the heart.’ – Sharon Morris
