Kate Noakes explores themes of environmental damage and renewal. She uses imagined narratives to suggest options, to us, for repairing the planet, and relearning how to live in harmony with it. This is earthy poetry - rooted in the land - that looks at skills we have forgotten, and real food. Kate’s work chimes with some important social themes, but this is poetry of subtlety, rich in its song and imagery.

“Kate Noakes’s attention to detail in ‘The Wall Menders’ (whether through memory, observation, allegory, cadence, or the timing of a phrase) is a metaphor for her theme of environmental repair. Reading her poems with the care they deserve gives an intimation of what it might feel were the world in safe hands.”Peter Robinson
