Deirdre Hines' first collection of poetry includes the six poems that won her the Listowel Poetry Collection competition prize in 2011 alongside over two dozen new poems. Her poems address our times in metrically precise poetry that weaves images of luminosity using many different characters. They take the reader on journeys that traverse untrodden terrains. The Language of Coats is a pleasure to read, all the more so because of the time and craft the poet has applied in bringing it to fruition.
