Still builds on Meredith’s previous collection, Air Histories, shifting between the personal and impersonal, developing a characteristically wide range of forms, techniques, settings and moods from quirky to serious, while increasingly an underlying coherence of vision emerges. Many of the poems feature Welsh landscapes and settings, in common with much of the author’s previous work.


  • “This is a deeply intelligent and moving collection which deserves much more than this brief survey. Read it, study it, and enjoy it. Talk about it with one another before basking in that stillness, that hush which descends ‘whenever you examine great art’.”

    Nathan Munday, Wales Arts Review

  • "By any yardstick, Still is a major achievement"

    The Yorkshire Times

  • "Beautiful, subtle, mysteriously evasive poems... a great achievement."
