Grateful to Jessica Traynor for her considered and thoughtful review of Of Ochre and Ash in Issue 134 of Poetry Ireland Review.
'Few Irish poets can boast a voice as singular and recognisable as Hooker’s, a poet
who has already gifted us with a richly symbolic mythic landscape. Of Ochre and Ash
is an exploration of grief and its topographies, both personal and political; how the
difficult history of Ireland intersects with landscape
Of Ochre and Ash sees Eleanor Hooker writing powerful poetry, breaking new ground.'
