Maundering is both a physical and verbal process. One can walk in a maundering, aimless fashion and one can verbosely maunder on. Claire Kelly’s debut collection, Maunder, contains poems about the physical act of walking as well as the mental act, what is seen and what is reflected on. These poems allow the reader to amble across the page, stepping from image to image, place to place, striding, pivoting in different, unexpected directions.
Praise for Claire Kelly
Rural wanderers and urban flâneurs, the myriad speakers in Claire Kelly’s Maunder, swagger, stalk, tiptoe, and promenade inquisitively through time and place, attentive to the vertiginous strangeness of their own experience, the “symbiotic economy” of self and other. Kelly examines oddity and quiddity alike with resilience, humour, and sonic verve.
—Michael Prior, author of Model Disciple
