"A T. S. Eliot Prize-winning collection from one of Ireland's major contemporary poets PARALLAX: (Astron.) Apparent displacement, or difference in the apparent position, of an object, caused by actual change (or difference) of position of the point of observation. (OED) In Parallax Sine;ad Morrissey documents what is caught, and what is lost, when houses and cityscapes, servants and saboteurs ("the different people who lived in sepia"), are arrested in time by photography (or poetry), subjected to the authority of a particular perspective. Assured and disquieting, Morrisey's poems explore the paradoxes in what is seen, read, and misread in the surfaces of the presented world"--
