Teri Murray’s poetry has no predecessors and can have no imitators. So says poet Richard Halperin in his introduction to Teri Murray’s latest collection of poetry Under a Linnet’s Wing (The Eliza Press).
One of Limerick’s most loved and respected poets this is Murray’s fifth collection of poems.
Murray has always been an uncompromising poet, staying true to her own vision while appealing to her always appreciative audience. This collection contains the usual Murray mix of love, loss, hellos and goodbyes but told with a vitality and integrity of language, which looks deceptively simple. Murray is not just a poet, she is a great poet.
