About this title

Synopsis:

Review:

`Fleur Adcock, from whose five books the contents of Selected Poems has been chosen, is one of the best poets writing in English.' Gavin Ewart

`substantial and highly impressive`
Event

`An individual, woman's-eye view of the world, a book to be returned to, dipped into, often.' Adrian Henri

`Adcock's work covers a wide range and is at its most effective when touching on intimate themes, or developing bright fantasies...Humour and honesty are the poet's great virtues.' Christopher Reid

`stylistically all of a piece, written in a clear, accurate, unstrained contemporary idiom, poetic by virtue of observation, a sly irony, and structure...It is a consistently interesting book.' Martin Dodsworth

`as unputdownable as a good story...an abundant, attractive book, fiercely fresh and truthful' Claude Rawson

`Adcock deals with the problems that affect all of us and lifts them into the dimension of highly accomplished art; she is an exceptionally rewarding and readable poet.' Alan Bold
