Description

Description

This deals with break-up, depression, illness and death. But it also reveals an intense involvement with nature and a capacity for healing and love.

here are intimate personal poems reflecting on relationships with people and creatures; poems which enter the lives of real and imaginary characters, Keats and Medea and Blodeuwedd, for example; and also poems which engage with paintings and political events. Set in a territory which connects child with adult, myth with reality, the personal with the universal, the book shows a poet fully open to the richness and possibilities of the world but also aware of its violence and pain, not as a remote observer but as someone who is a part of it.  80pp

Vicki Feaver was born in Nottingham in 1943.
