The poems in Herd begin as a kind of diary of Carola Luther's time in Grasmere.
They chronicle her response to the place but also bring in elements of personal history and her awareness of the wider political context. She has a remarkable facility for imagery that is rooted in the visual but is capable of great imaginative leaps, which make her poems so exciting.
Herd represents a new stage in Carola's work and a fitting document to a special year.
