Dearly : Poems Hardback

Hardback

Description

GOODREADS CHOICE AWARDS 2020 -- BEST POETRY The collection of a lifetime from the bestselling novelist, poet - and cultural phenomenon.

Before she became one of the world's most important and loved novelists, Margaret Atwood was a poet.

Dearly is her first collection in over a decade. It brings together many of her most recognisable and celebrated themes, but distilled -- from minutely perfect descriptions of the natural world to startlingly witty encounters with aliens, from pressing political issues to myth and legend. By turns moving, playful and wise, the poems gathered in Dearly are about absences and endings, ageing and retrospection, but also about gifts and renewals.

They explore bodies and minds in flux, as well as the everyday objects and rituals that embed us in the present.

Werewolves, sirens and dreams make their appearance, as do various forms of animal life and fragments of our damaged environment. Dearly is a pure Atwood delight, and long-term readers and new fans alike will treasure its insight, empathy and humour. 'A new volume of poetry by the writer of wit and optimism . . . Just when we needed her most' Gentlewoman*BOOK OF THE YEAR OBSERVER, FINANCIAL TIMES *
