“Maria Isakova Bennett’s poems are otherworldly. They take you into a dream-space that is rich with emotion – into landscapes that are so close you can taste them. But there is always an agreeable tease – nothing is settled, everything unravels, there is always more to the story. “Under water,” she writes, “everything is clear” – these poems, so in love with art and landscape, are all about tempting you to travel further – and to be happy as you travel.”

Bill Greenwell


“These are poems seduced by a longing for wildness, coastal roads, rough seas; the freedom and self-expansion found in love. Opening out to the west wind, Maria Isakova Bennett guides us through the sensuous into the mysteries of passion.”
