The stunning new collection from the winner of the Seamus Heaney Centre Poetry Prize.

Katharine Towers' second collection, The Remedies, is a book of small wonders: from a house drowning in roses to crickets on an August day, from Nerval's lobster to the surrealism of flower remedies, these poems explore the fragility of our relationship with the natural world. Towers also shows us what relationship can aspire to be: each poem attunes us to another aspect of that world, and shows what strangeness and wonder might be revealed when we properly attend to it. The result is a lyric, unforgettable collection which offers just the spiritual assuagement its title promises - and shows Katharine Towers developing into a major poetic talent.
