Autumn: An Anthology for the Changing Seasons (Paperback)

£12.99
Usually despatched within 2 days.

Synopsis

Autumn is a time of transformation. Crisp, clear days mark summer's close and usher in a new season with its rich scents and vivid palette, leaves flaming red and gold by day, bonfires and fireworks lighting up the lengthening nights. There is abundance, as humans and animals make stores for the winter; and there is decay, which gives rise to the next cycle of life.; In prose and poetry from across the British Isles, Autumn captures both the exhilaration and the melancholy of this turning point in the year. Featuring original writing by Horatio Clare, John Lewis-Stempel and Amy Liptrot, classic extracts from the work of Ted Hughes, Helen Macdonald and Nan Shepherd, and a wealth of fresh new voices, Autumn is an evocative celebration of the year's decline - and new beginnings.

Customer Reviews

This anthology does a wonderful job of mixing new and old voices to tell the story of how we experience autumn. It's full of lyrical writing, thoughtful reflection, and close attention to the landscape, its flora and fauna, and the way the changes of the season work.
