5.0 out of 5 stars essential!, 28 Dec 2008

This review is from: The Tree House (Paperback)
A great friend of mine, who knows these things, described Kathleen Jamie as 'perhaps the best British contemporary poet'. I don't pretend to her depth of knowledge, but for me, this collection is peerless. A profound understanding of human beings as a part of the whole living world underpins Jamie's vision> Her language moves easily between the earthy and the ethereal. She's a bit like Mary Oliver for grown-ups - she has a broader vision and is less prone to sentiment. Every image is authentic and precise, every poem, accessible yet profound, spiritual without being sentimental or religious.

I just think Kathleen Jamie is a genius who writes musical, thoughtful, accessible poetry that explores relationships within the natural landscape. End of story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 21 July 2012
This review is from: The Tree House (Paperback)
I'd not read Kathleen Jamie before, then a friend said I didn't know what I was missing. How true! I read this collection recently and was blown away by it. The beauty, simplicity and clarity of the poet's voice and the power of her images transform the natural world. It is uplifting verse - you truly will feel better after reading it. Kathleen Jamie writes about the flow of life between all things, about our inescapable bond with nature and our responses to it. This is modern lyrical poetry at its best; each poem tempts you back several times and lines echo in the memory all day. You'll never look at trees or birds the same way again. This is what poetry is for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kathleen Jamie, 16 Mar 2014

This review is from: The Tree House (Paperback)
These are short poems that manage to convey a wide view. She combines detailed, personal observation - one feels she has looked at wild life and the landscape with a close eye, experienced it with her whole being - with a broader yet no less considered view of modern life.

This was a present to my sister. I'm sure she liked it very much as all Kathleen Jamie's writing is good. The price was good too.
