Framed is a collection of raw emotion easy to identify with, and which promptly touches the inner core of our being. Together with reflections about natural and social phenomena, it is set in and around day-to-day life, exploring the complexities of family relationships, food, art and observations, and little nuances which we often fail to notice in the rush of life.
“The reader cannot but admire Maria Grech Ganado’s penetrating gaze in poems about childhood, family, love, loss and ageing, many with philosophical musings. She manages to frame life with a sideways slant and wit, and even in the darkest of subject matter, there is an iridescence which shines through. A poet to live by — she deserves to be recognised among Europe’s leading women poets — certainly one of poetry’s wisest women.”
