Weathered

Weathered explores the era in which we find ourselves – the Anthropocene – and how we are transforming the world on a cataclysmic scale. The climate emergency is altering our weather, landscapes and our connections to place. Covid-19 has upended our social systems and sense of security. Circling the intimate connections between place, memory and identity, these poems trace the psychological fallout of anthropogenic change to our ecologies and climactic patterns. Weathered weaves together the physical, emotional, and social landscapes transfigured by the Anthropocene and Covid-19 into a poetic history of memory and transformation.

‘In 1836 Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, ‘The poet who shall use Nature as his hieroglyphic must have an adequate message to convey thereby.’ Rachael Mead writes beautifully about nature, about ‘the earth cracking beneath my weight.’ She also has pointed and poignant things to say about people, places and human sensibilities. Emerson would approve.’
Brook Emery

‘Weathered is a wonder. Like all worthwhile art it teaches you how to read it and then unfolds in many layers and shades the more you engage with it.
This book provokes a physical reaction with its skilled, visceral language and psychological honesty. You will endure a storm and emerge seen and known.’
Melinda Smith
