Taking the warp of dream, sometimes nightmare, and weaving it with the ordinary world, the poems of The Armillary Sphere, Ann Hudson's award-winning debut collection, do not simplify the mystery but deepen it.

“Ann Hudson excels at description. Her images are highly sensitive and precise miniatures. It is this marked talent that recommends The Armillary Sphere.”
