In poems that embrace both traditional and experimental forms, Rachel Dilworth's work explores complex factors involved in the loss by thousands of Irish women of years of their lives, numerous aspects of their identities, and countless future possibilities to confinement and arduous unpaid laundry labor as "penitents" in these facilities for so-called "fallen" women. Pervaded by a cutting awareness of an incarceration of the spirit, as well as of the beauty and naturalness of so many women's development being suppressed and denied, these poems navigate individual and collective voice and silences, the held and withheld and disappeared or ignored, with a grace and unflinching attention. Humane and wide-ranging, The Wild Rose Asylum is a researched act of witness to an issue rife with losspoems that seek to be "bird enough to dive far/into the heart of it and bring up something."
