In Praise of Men and Other Peopleav Ann Sansom129Specialorder (osäker tillgång). Skickas inom 11-20 vardagar.
Fri frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.Ann Sansom's poetry overturns the reader's expectations. Her poems often present human dramas in which people are seen as acting out their versions of themselves in their own fictions - what Stanley Cook called 'an authentic Northern mix of realism and imagination'. In Praise of Men and other people was her first new book for nearly a decade, a welcome return for a quietly authoritative, resiliently gritty poet whose debut collection Romance won her many admirers.

Ann Sansom's naturally accomplished and instinctively organised poems come as a breath of fresh air in an age when technical contrivance often passes for literary credibility. There is a maturity to her work, a sureness of hand normally associated with only the most established poets, but there is a freshness too, and a bareknuckle confidence that seems to sing of the author's realisation of poetry as a first language and a mother tongue. -- Simon Armitage
