Review of Home Farm in The London Magazine

The British poet, Hugh Dunkerley, reviews Home Farm in The London Magazine. Hugh Dunkerley describes Home Farm as a "moving and formally restless collection" and says "Sutherland writes nuanced, formally ambitious poems about subjects vital to us all – how we treat animals and wider nature, the death of parents, loss, war. But her voice is also subtle. She never trumpets her opinions and there is a remarkable lack of any self-pity in the work. This is the power of the poetry, the way the poems demand that the reader engage with them on a deeper level. At a time when both politics and performance poetry seem to be about who can shout loudest, Sutherland’s is a quiet and necessary voice." To read the whole review click on the button below...
