"Selected Poems" draws on all the books Elizabeth Jennings published before Growing-Points.
It represents the poet's own distillation of the first two decades of her writing - the poems which established her as one of the most passionate and precise of our writers, a woman of human values, religious vision and natural sympathy. 'The outstanding thing about Jennings' poetry' wrote Douglas Dunn, 'is its wisdom, hard earned from grief and religious faith'. And Peter Levi says, 'She is one of the few living poets we could not do without'.
