Synopsis

POETRY BOOK SOCIETY CHOICE



The Thing in the Gap-Stone Stile, Alice Oswald's first collection of poems, announced the arrival of a distinctive new voice. Shortlisted for the T. S. Eliot Prize, the book introduced readers to her meditative, intensely musical style, and her breath-taking gift for visionary writing.



'The poetry of Alice Oswald arrives like a zephyr . . . a fresh and exciting first collection.' Kathleen Jamie, Times Literary Supplement



'an inspired debut of lightly-worn wisdom and verbal panache.' John Fuller



'Alice Oswald throws the windows of the imagination open; she places a fingertip on the pulse of tradition, and proves it is still very much alive.' The Times

Alice Oswald lives in Devon and is married with three children. Dart, her second volume, won the T. S. Eliot Prize in 2002. Her third collection, Woods etc., won the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize 2006. 'Oswald emerges as an inheritor of some of Britain's greatest poetic voices, an heir to Ted Hughes, Seamus Heaney and Geoffrey Hill.' Rachel Campbell-Johnston, The Times 'Alice Oswald is making a new kind of poetry . . . she is in the front rank of writers, in poetry and prose, who are not content to work only with what exists already.' Jeanette Winterston 'The wonderful Alice Oswald who, by rights, should be winning every prize going this year.' Carol Ann Duffy
