Description

This volume brings together all the poems Anne Stevenosn wishes to preserve from over forty year's writing. Her earlier titles, including Correspondence: a family history in letters , made her name in America, where she grew up. The more recent of her ten collections have won acclaim mainly in Britain. Wise, funny, witty, grave: she is a poet of many moods and subjects, but always preoccupied with language and its music. She is one of the most versatile and lively poets of her two countries, the United States and Great Britain. nne Stevenson now lives in Gwynedd, Wales, and in Grantchester, near Cambridge, England. She is the author of a biography of Sylvia Plath and of many critical essays. Of Selected Poems 1956-1986 `She is a stylist of fresh and dark tones. She has plenty of things to say, chooses what she says, and speaks with a lucid momentum. In every generation one is afraid that they are not making poets like her any more.' Peter Levi, Poetry Review This book is intended for poetry readers, UK and America. (Women readers; women's courses).show more
