Anne-Marie Fyfe – The Voyage Out
Born within yards of the Sea of Moyle on the North Antrim Coast, Anne-Marie has (ever since poems such as ‘No Far Shore’ in her first collection, Late Crossing) regularly contemplated in her poetry what it means to live on the edge of the depths, geographically and psychologically, in sheltering bays between brooding headlands; what it is to be drawn, constantly, beguilingly, by vanishing islands and shifting horizons into setting sail, again and again, in terms both real and metaphorical, from familiar terra firma, out onto unknowable waters.
