Museum Pieces, Wendy Pratt
Museum Pieces is the first full collection of poetry from Scarborough born Wendy Pratt (her debut pamphlet Nan Hardwicke Turns Into A Hare, also published by Prolebooks, was favourably reviewed in the Times Literary Supplement as one of the best pamphlets of 2011). In taking a tour through the rooms in Wendy Pratt’s museum (from The Portrait Gallery to The Surrealist’s Wardrobe) the reader will encounter themes of love, loss, time and recurrence, all written in a startlingly original voice.
In her foreword, Abegail Morley says: Wendy Pratt has a diverse range of poems in this collection and what draws them together is a combination of loss, stunning imagery (which is at times breath-taking) and the sense that ghosts of the past always rear up, refuse to be forgotten. For me, the beauty lies not just in the words and stunning last lines, but also in the way Pratt shows each part of the book as a “room” and each poem an “exhibit”. I was compelled to follow as she guided me with ease into her private landscape…. …At the heart of the collection, she offers grace and pain in equal measures – the reader never feels overwhelmed or overburdened, the poet has total control. We linger somewhere between darkness and light, slightly troubled, but in the hands of a skilful poet whose voice is strong, crisp and lucid.
