The poems in The Body in Space are concerned with the living presence of place, in particular the landscapes of Scotland and what is written over them by history. The poems bring together people and places – family relationships enacted through webs of intimacy or distance, the dead remembered in interleaved images of art and medicine.

“Gerrie Fellows is deeply invested in the Scottish Landscape. In The Body in Space even the poems of mourning and child-rearing bear the trace of that landscape. Her music is extraordinary.”
