LoveReading Expert Review of When I Think of My Body as a Horse

I found myself drawn in by the subject matter and beautifully evocative language of each individual poem.

When I first read the title of this book, I was unsure what to expect. To my delight I discovered a collection of quite beautiful and extremely emotive poems. To analyse any would be to completely spoil the intense feeling that I had when I read them. Frequently I find poetry collections from a single poet rather disappointing as I will only engage with a few of them. Here, however, I found myself drawn in by the subject matter and beautifully evocative language of each individual poem. This is a book that I should like to own and to read and reread. I welcome the experience of discovering it.

When I Think of My Body as a Horse Synopsis

Winner of the 2020 International Book & Pamphlet Competition judged by Imtiaz Dharker & Ian McMillan, 'When I Think of My Body as a Horse' is about trauma, recovery and the powerful, animal instincts embedded in the act of creating a family. These poems explore motherhood and body identity within the context of baby loss, when there is no ‘rainbow baby’ to add closure to the narrative.
