Hubble won The Poetry Business Competition 1996.

The poems in Hubble develop themes of exploration - of space, of the sea. Diana Syder celebrates technology - whether the great Hubble telescope or a walkman - not for itself but for the way it helps us interact with the world and with each other. Copernicus explains himself to God, Judge Davies does his ironing, Everest is seen from Nagarkot.

Syder 'keeps and open mind' while trying 'to look beyond the edge of thing' ('Prayer to a Telescope') in poems which are elegantly self-contained but which gather their argument through succeeding sections.

Hubble is a vividly written, mature and engrossing first collection.
