Weeds and Wild Flowers,
This review is from: Weeds and Wild Flowers (Hardcover)
A really beautiful book in all senses, the poetry, the etchings and the physical book itself. I haven't really liked much poetry but decided to buy this after reading a review in The Guardian newspaper and was not disappointed. A slight criticism, if I dare to make one would be a lack of reference at the end to the Latin/alternative names of the flowers in the poems as I have had to look up many as I wasn't familiar with the names used. The same for the etchings would be good. The book is a delight without, so don't be put off by this comment. I am expecting some more of Oswald's poetry for my birthday!
