A box of delights,
This review is from: At the Source: A Writer's Year (Paperback)
This collection of reflective. autobiographical essays from the National Poet of Wales deserves more recognition and a wider readership. Each piece is beautifully shaped with the prose reading as poetry as she. with a few deft phrases, brings to the reader pre-war Wales, her loving and beloved Welsh-speaking father, her ambitious English-speaking (Welsh) mother, the farmhouse she nutures back to life and the wild life in her field and hedgerows.
She conjures scenes from the present and the past with economy and power and leaves the reader both satisfied but wanting more.
