Anger blazes a path: it strips away pretence and clears a space from which to speak… Crowe holds two fingers up to the conventional poetic, and convention in general.  

Georgia Gildea review, THE BELL TOWER

 

 The Bell Tower published with The Emma Press.

Acerbic, precise and very funny, Pamela Crowe’s poems explore home life and relationships in a delightfully forthright voice. Secret frustrations and anxieties are aired and private fantasies brought into the light, as odes blur into diatribes and psychodramas become love poems.

Woven throughout The Bell Tower is a love of Jane Austen, Sylvia Plath, Wendy Cope and – above all – Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones. These are fierce, acutely observed poems that give weight to domestic minutiae and put words to helpless howls into the abyss.

Crowe’s poetry is fierce and damning, witty and melodic – an ode to being a woman.  @pourawayyouth
