Voting for Spring

Central to the title poem is the long human struggle for survival against ice and cold. The poem makes contact with our present climate crisis, as well as suggesting a dimension which is more personal.

The keynote of Paul Mills’ new book is affirmation, but also uncertainty – a day and night experience for the speaker of ‘Women in a Munitions Factory’, from a group of poems based on archive film. His reaction to his daughter’ psychiatric illness and her recovery is the subject of the powerful poem sequence, ’21/2001′.

Together these poems reflect his ability to move between the remote and everyday, to combine intense vividness with philosophical insight.
