Remembrance Day for Lost Species: Special Issue for The Clearing magazine

Michael Malay (Editor)

Research output: Other contribution


‘Poetry can repair no loss,’ John Berger writes, ‘but it defies the space which separates.’ This special issue of The Clearing brings together seven writers to mark the Remembrance Day of Lost Species. Although they respond to the grief and disorientation of our times, these pieces are not eulogies. Rather, they are songs of hope and memory, commitment and renewal. They mark the immensity of current and past losses, but defiantly — by bridging the ‘space which separates.’
