Ruth Fainlight's poems 'give us truly new visions of usual and mysterious events' (A.S. Byatt). Each poem is a balancing act between thought and feeling, revealing otherness within the everyday, often measuring subtle shifts in relationships between women and men. Images of the moon, however interpreted - whether as stern and stony presence or protective maternal symbol - recur throughout Ruth Fainlight's work. "Moon Wheels" includes 33 new poems, as well as poems resurrected from her sequence "Twelve Sibyls" (1991) and from her out-of-print collection "This Time of Year" (1993), and translations of leading modern Latin American poets, including Cesar Vallejo and Sophia de Mello Breyner.
