Works about this Work

Texture and Complexity : Carmel Macdonald Grahame Launches ‘Suburban Whistlestop’ Carmel MacDonald-Grahame , 2018 single work essay
— Appears in: Rochford Street Review , 25 October – December 2018;

'Some words are not easily used by poets. For example, writers have had to argue for a long time on behalf of the word Domestic. Domestic references and themes like family life, a focus on children, households, household labour, gardens, food, a daily walk…have been belittled in the past and seen as unworthy of poetry, even somehow inherently unpoetic. There is a general understanding about the grand tradition, that great public themes like war, the glories of history, or great abstractions like Love and Death have had the upper hand, so to speak.' (Introduction)
