Dearly - Poems by Margaret Atwood
AUTHOR : Margaret Atwood
Dearly is celebrated author Margret Atwood's first collection of poems in over a decade. It brings together many of her most recognizable and celebrated themes.
The collection of a lifetime from the bestselling novelist, poet -- and cultural phenomenon before she became one of the world's most important and loved novelists, Margaret Atwood was a poet. Dearly is her first collection in over a decade. It brings together many of her most recognisable and celebrated themes, but distilled -- from minutely perfect descriptions of the natural world to startlingly witty encounters with aliens, from pressing political issues to myth and legend. By turns moving, playful and wise, the poems gathered in dearly are about absences and endings, ageing and retrospection, but also about gifts and renewals. They explore bodies and minds in flux, as well as the everyday objects and rituals that embed us in the present. Werewolves, sirens and dreams make their appearance, as do various forms of animal life and fragments of our damaged environment. Dearly is a pure Atwood delight, and long-term readers and new fans alike will treasure its insight, empathy and humour.
'A poignant yet playful collection of verse, about endings and departures, it is sliced with clever, sharp humour'
-- Sonia Haria, Daily Telegraph
