Poems and Polaroids
By

Rating
With this book, Kate McBride invites us to journey with her as armchair travellers through eighty-four poems and more than two-hundred Polaroids. The milkiness, the painterly, almost ethereal look of the images and the poetic record of a place and time create what McBride describes as "dreamscapes". The lines, with the rhythmic flow of her words, and the snapshots, crisp and impressionist-like, evoke the cities and places, the colours, the smells and the people, from Paris to Florence, from the Pacific Ocean to Andalusia. The poems are sketches, notes jotted down on the spot to seize the moment, and the photos - taken with a Spectra - encapsulate fragments of life that everyone, albeit through different eyes, has had a chance to experience at one time or another. Thus poetry ceases to be the private pursuit of its author and enters the world of readers, stirring up their own memories and feelings.
