Description

This is a selection from Penelope Shuttle's six books of poetry, beginning with "The Orchard Upstairs" in 1980. The selection is made by the author herself, and it shows her passionate awareness of the many ways - sacred and profane, comic, sensuous, and joyful - in which we sustain ourselves through poetry. The poems combine intelligence with uninhibited emotional power. This book is intended for 6th Form, A-level syllabus and Undergraduate students.show more
