The host of characters staged here - men, women and children, their many faces in the crowd, confront the rhetorics of convention and the moribund tyrannies of establishment- discovering the agonies and the ecstasies threatened, promised and occasionally given by change and renewal. The dialogues and negotiations in these poems reveal with an intense poetic insight both the power and the powerlessness of the individual with a deftly struck contemporary resonance. There isnt always a happy ending here, but there are dollops of freedom, playful asides, sensual accords, glitz and glamour on the way, sustained by a visceral honesty. With an extensive itinerary, from Belfast to Sardinia and beyond and a time canvas that conflates centuries The Way I Dressed During The Revolution is quite simply an astonishing breathtaking debut.
