The Carrying by Ada Limón review – from the heart, unvarnished

Today 18:10 GMT

I had never read Ada Limón when I dipped into Bright Dead Things and The Carrying (published simultaneously in Britain), but have since discovered that Limón is far from an unknown quantity in her native US.

She situates herself in her writing as a figure in a landscape – rural Kentucky – and her struggles (especially with fertility in Carrying) are set against this unheeding pastoral scene. In a recent interview, she said she thought it important that poets should not “just write poems for other poets”.
