LAURIE LEE SELECTED POEMS

LAURIE LEE    Book Number: 86295    Product format: Paperback

From the horrors of war to lively observations of nature and gentle love poetry, first published in three separate collections, the poems in this anthology span the first decade as well as the many changes of mood in the work of Laurie Lee. The author of Cider with Rosie and A Moment of War (1991) this book of poetry is for pure pleasure. New readers will find jubilant images and limpid vision which characterised all his writings and those familiar with his work will return with renewed excitement at his great power with words. It is impossible not to be moved. Larch Tree: "Oh, larch tree with scarlet berries sharpen the morning slender sun, sharpen the thin taste of September with your aroma of sweet wax and powder delicate. Fruit is falling in the valley breaking on the snouts of foxes breaking on the wooden crosses where children bury the shattered bird..." The Edge of the Day: "The dawn's precise pronouncement waits with breath of light indrawn, then forms with smoky, smut-red lips the great O of the sun..." 80 page paperback, 52 poems.
