Press Reviews

'Transparencies is a strong collection showing a highly skilled poet on top of her craft, using language and imagery in a sensitive but candid way, and speaking with a very individual voice' - Brian McCabe 'Meg Bateman's embrace of Gaelic has awakened her poetry to a noble passionate candour rare in today's over-ironical English' - Les Murray 'The end result of this beautifully constructed and paced collection is a universal evocation of commonalities fused by human consideration ... The title Transparencies hints at ephemeral moments caught. The poet suggests she aspires to a "palimpsest" of emotions recalled and now renewed upon the page. She succeeds' - The Herald
