'A Dart of Green and Blue' explores the impact of loss on the human spirit; we witness the death of a mother and of a child, the loss of a lover and the erosion of self. A variety of birds inhabit the poems, carrying moments of joy and healing as well as grief. In one sequence, a girl is eclipsed by the shadow of a gull's wing; in another she turns pelican, bleeding from self-inflicted wounds. But there are visionary moments and transformations too. In one sequence, Barrett imagines her dying mother transformed into a kingfisher: " - I waited. Watched. It only took one hour before a dart of brilliant green and blue flashed past me (heading somewhere) and was gone." There is resilience and some redemption in this collection. At the end of a sequence of poems charting the loss of a lover, a blackbird is still singing softly. And, in the collection's closing poem, a finch flies into the human 'labyrinth of tissue and bone' where it sings of a 'horizon sparkling with phosphorescence'.

Bibliotekernes beskrivelse This is highly-charged poetry - intelligent, honest, unsentimental, exciting - full of surprises and with an unflagging pace and energy from the start. In four sections, the book contains sequences on the death of the poet's mother and the quarrying of Portland stone, as well poems exploring old and new relationships, dying and developing love.
