about this item

The brillilant second collection from Next Generation Poet, T.S. Eliot and Costa shortlisted poet, Helen Mort.'When we climb aloneen cordeé feminine,we are magicians of the Alps -we make the routes we followdisappear.'Helen Mort's riveting second collection is inspired by her two greatest passions: mountaineering and running.In odes to the young women who tramped the Alps in their skirts and petticoats, long hemlines and 'fashionable shoes', here are poems inspired by Miss Jemima Morrell, a young woman from Yorkshire, who was the first Victorian woman to scale the Swiss peaks. At the heart of the collection lies the breathtaking sequence 'Black Rocks', dedicated to Alison Hargreaves, the British climber who perished at the face of K2.These are distinctive and unforgettable poems of passion and precipices, of edges and extremes.No Map Could Show Them confirms Helen's position as one of the finest young poets at work today.
