We'll Sing Blackbird by Rebecca O'Connor

‘Artful and wry, these fresh poems surprise by making a big picture out of miniatures ... O’Connor has an eye for what Elizabeth Bishop called the "always-more-successful surrealism of everyday life"’ John McAuliffe, The Irish Times

‘I have been impressed and charmed in equal measure by We’ll Sing Blackbird. Quite beautiful.’ Scott Pack

‘A delicate, polished gem ... The poet's voice is nimble, light, assured.’ Doireann Ni Ghriofa, The Stinging Fly

Shortlisted for the Strong Shine Award 2013 (for best first collection) 

The Lakes’ was highly commended in the 2013 Forward Prizes for Poetry.
