Read from December 20, 2010 to January 03, 2011

I remember reading the first stanza of 'wintering' in The Guardian's review some time ago, at a particularly heartbroken moment in my life. It was as if Carol Ann Duffy had reached into my heart and distilled the tumult into words. This is a lovely read, the poems inside like fine pearls strung into a necklace, a movingly beautiful piece of work showcasing the breadth of human emotion; the tangle of feelings that come tied up with love. It is also, one of the most accessible collections of poetry I've come across in my limited exposure to the form.

Claire Handscombe The "tangle of feelings" - yes. Exactly right.
