In her debut collection, Rosamund Taylor dares us across thresholds and invites us to glimpse the world as we’ve never seen it before. She boldly charts a journey of survival and transformation with poems on history reimagined, astronomy, sorcery, wild landscapes, talismanic creatures, and queer love. Taylor explores what it means to live in a female body that is not defined by lack, or want, or perpetual suffering, but is possessed by a real and defined sense of erotic autonomy. These poems burn from the inside out with possibility, and there is magic, mystery and reclamation at every turn. In Her Jaws is a landmark debut that extends and deepens the Irish tradition of writing the female perspective, while also breaking new ground.

About the Author Rosamund Taylor won the Mairtín Crawford Award at the Belfast Book Festival in 2017, and her poem ‘The Proof’ won the London Magazine Poetry Competition in 2020. Recently, her poems have appeared in Magma, Agenda, Banshee, Channel, Poetry Ireland Review and on LambdaLiterary.Org
