Not Many Love Poems, Paperback / softback Book

Not Many Love Poems Paperback / softback


At the age of fifty Linda Chase began to publish poems, to win prizes, and to develop her skills as a performer of her own work and a facilitator and impresario for others. "Not Many Love Poems" is a sensual celebration of the varied relationships that make up lives richly lived and imagined.

Chase's imagination is stimulated by paintings (she was artist-in-residence at Manchester City Art Gallery, and produced ekphrastic work), by gardening, by memory and by love.

A battle with cancer resulted in some of her most harrowing and healing work.

Her style is insistently demotic: the poems carry her voice: gentle, sharp, wry, loving.

The reader senses a generous honesty at work, and an insatiable curiosity.

Linda Chase's wit and sharp eye for telling detail make "Not Many Love Poems" a collection in which the poet can express heartbreak, and the narratives of the everyday reveal unique moments of insight.
