Fifty years of powerful verse from one of Britain's major poets. -- Independent On Sunday, June 19, 2005
About the Author
anne stevenson was born in Cambridge, England, in 1933, of American parents, and grew up in New England and Michigan. She studied music, European literature and history at the University of Michigan, returning later to read English and publishing the first critical study of Elizabeth Bishop. After several transatlantic switches, she settled in Britain in 1964, and has since lived in Cambridge, Scotland, Oxford, the Welsh Borders and latterly in North Wales and Durham. She has held many literary fellowships, and was the inaugural winner of Britain's biggest literary prize, the Northern Rock Foundation Writer's Award, in 2002. As well as her numerous collections of poetry, Anne Stevenson has published a biography of Sylvia Plath (1989), a book of essays, Between the Iceberg and the Ship (1998) and two critical studies of Elizabeth Bishop's work, most recently Five Looks at Elizabeth Bishop (1998).
Top Customer Reviews
Encompassing a enviable emotional and sylistic range her technical facility is never more than a means to an end. The end being clearly focused yet emotionally warm verse.
That's not to say, however, that she doesn't possess a biting wit.
Above all else, she is an acute observer of both minutae and the larger picture.
Popular within poetry circles, Anne deserves a wider audience than she has now.
This is another beautifly produced edition from Bloodaxe, who are, in my humble opinion, easily the finest UK publisher of contemporary poetry.
