Taking Off Emily Dickinson's Clothes, Paperback / softback Book

Taking Off Emily Dickinson's Clothes Paperback / softback


`Billy Collins is one of my favourite poets in the world' Carol Ann Duffy Readers will only have to open this book at random to realize the privation a life without Billy Collins has been. A writer of immense grace and humanity, Billy Collins shows how the great forces of history and nature converge on the tiniest details of our lives - and in doing so presents them in a new radiance.

He is also unbelievably funny. `The most popular poet in America' New York Times `Billy Collins writes lovely poems . . . Limpid, gently and consistently startling, more serious than they seem, they describe all the worlds that are and were and some others besides' John Updike `Billy Collins' medium is a rare amalgam of accessibility and intelligence.

I'd follow this man's mind anywhere. Expect to be surprised' Michael Donaghy `Smart, his strings tuned and resonant, his wonderful eye looping over the things, events and ideas of the world, rueful, playful, warm voiced, easy to love' E.
