Slow Air

A Painted Field – Robin Robertson’s first collection – was published in 1997 to unanimous acclaim. In language both sensuous and coolly forthright, the poems in Slow Air describe the arc of loss, the search for grace, and the radiances and shadows of the natural world – the work pitching its embattled romanticism, its lyric weight, against fear, grief and erasure.
