Product Description

Review

Jenny Joseph writes poems full of mist and reason, poems strange in what they say but plain in the way they say it, poems rooted in an English tradition of passionate but quiet exactness...careful craftsmanship, an honest exploration of the human heart, and statement after statement that nags at the memory. --Robert Nye, The Times

She can delineate surfaces like a sculptor - exact, precise, sharply definite - yet with a startling undertow, a pull of unease which lies just beneath the texture, as an artery beneath the skin. --Joan Foreman, Eastern Daily Press

Rational, realist, philosophical, Jenny Joseph represents a stoical refusal to see life other than it is - a less sentimental poetry it would be hard to imagine. --British Book News

About the Author

Jenny Joseph is one of Britain's best-known poets. Her poem 'Warning' ('When I am an old woman I shall wear purple...') was voted Britain's most popular modern poem in a BBC poll. Her Bloodaxe Selected Poems (1992) includes this and other work from her collections The Unlooked-for Season (1960), Rose in the Afternoon (1974), The Thinking Heart (1978) and Beyond Descartes (1983). Her later books include Extended Similes (Bloodaxe, 1996) and Led by the Nose: A Garden of Smells (Souvenir Press, 2004). She lives in Gloucestershire.
