Earth's Almanac, Paperback / softback Book


The poems in Earth's Almanac emerged over a fifteen-year period following the untimely death of the poet's sister.

Lucy Newlyn adapts the tradition of the 'Shepherd's Calendar' to the phases of grief, condensing a long process of reflection and remembering into the passage of a single year.

The poems shift through forms and move between places - Oxford, Borrowdale, and finally Cornwall, where the poet finds a second home near the sea.

In these intense expressions of love and loss, anger and guilt, there is no smooth path towards consolation.
