Vona Groarke (1964 - ) is Irish poet that teaches at the University of Manchester. She has published six books of poetry including this one. She has won multiple awards for her poetry. In this book "everything is on the move - from Elvis to oranges, from blackbirds to love - in poems that listen hard and find in movement a kind of music that is as complex and as delicate as the language used to pin it to the page. Flight features two award-winning meditations on the troubled subjects of history and time ... Other shorter lyrics and love poems develop the book's distinctive resonances" (jacket).
