Description

Gumiguru is the tenth month of the Shona calendar - a month of dryness and heat before the first rains fall and rejuvenate the land.

Togara Muzanenhamo's second collection is a cycle of poems distilling the experiences of a decade into one calendar year, framed through the natural and agricultural landscapes of Zimbabwe.

The book stands as both an elegy for the poet's father and a hymn to the veldt, the farms and villages, and the men and women whose lives are interwoven with the land and the changing seasons.

This book, first published in 1993, collects Spark's essays on the Brontes, her selection of their letters and of Emily's poetry.

Evident throughout are Spark's critical intelligence, dry wit, and refusal to sentimentalise - qualities that gave her own novels their particular appeal.

At the same time, The Essence of the Brontes is Muriel Spark's tribute to the sisters whose talents placed them on a stage from where they could hypnotize their own generation and, even more, posterity.
