Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Fleur Adcock" is one of Britain's most accomplished poets. Her poised, ironic poems are tense and tightly controlled, as well as, shrewdly laconic, and often chilling as she unmasks the deceptions of love or unravels family lives. Disarmingly conversational in style, they are remarkable for their psychological insight and their unsentimental, mischievously casual view of personal relationships. She has explored questions of identity and rootedness throughout her work, both in relation to her personal allegiances to her native New Zealand and adopted countries as well as her family history. She has also written movingly of birth, death, and bereavement, and has tackled political issues with honest indignation and caustic wit. This edition replaces her Selected Poems with the addition of work from her later Oxford collections. She has edited several anthologies, including The Faber Book of Twentieth Century Women's Poetry.

Synopsis:

This first collected edition of her poetry replaces her 'Selected Poems' with the addition of work from her later Oxford collections 'The Incident Book', 'Time-Zones' and 'Looking Back'.
