These poems draw you in, gently but  firmly, with telling detail and great emotional power. You share
what Yvonne Green observes – very beautifully – about day-to-day experience; appreciate what she has personally learnt about suffering; and reflect with her on the contribution poetry can make to understanding (perhaps even resolving) the world’s problems. Honoured, as well as being the title of a harrowing individual poem about female martyrdom, is well-chosen as the title of the book honouring the reader with its intelligence and compassion – and with the occasional agreeable surprise.

– Alan Brownjohn



Yvonne Green who lives in Hendon and Herzilia was born in London in 1957. Her first collection, Boukhara,
