Over the Boundaries is Marie Barrett’s first book of poems since the publication of ‘The Witnesses’ in 2000. Elegies, celebrations of love and redemption, and reminiscences are interspersed with inspired dream and prophetic utterance. The endless quest to find some fleeting image of our true selves is a re-occurring theme of the book. We cross the great divide between silence and words to find that part of ourselves that exists always in new beginnings. The poems attest to a harvest gleaned in the field of the Spirit.
‘These poems have real moments of beauty in them.’
‘The factual is the best ladder to the spiritual.’
