Abstract

In this expansive and exciting collection Hetherington moves with power and grace through an impressive range of form and content. The poems burst with tense and detailed images shot through with meditations on grief, absence, and hope. The work in Burnt Umber is always controlled and full of colour. Here is a poet at the height of his powers singing what it means to be alive." -- Professor Nigel McLoughlin, University of Gloucestershire.
"Somehow this collection landed seamlessly, each section, each page, each poem aligned perfectly. Burnt Umber is a collection of precision and clarity and handstitched joy." -- Professor Andrew Melrose, Winchester University
