Zero gravity by Gwyneth Lewis( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gwyneth Lewis's Zero Gravity treads new territory for poetry. Its title sequence is part space documentary, part requiem, drawing on her experience of watching her American cousin, astronaut Joe Tanner, helping to repair the Hubble Space Telescope. As well as reaching out to a loved one engaged on a dangerous mission in outer space, the poem considers internal journeys, including death, that we all have to undertake. The whole collection uses fables of self to view scenes from a marriage and to describe the experience of simply seeing."--BOOK JACKET
A hospital odyssey by Gwyneth Lewis( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

?A Hospital Odyssey is an outrageously imaginative voyage through illness and healing. Drawing on the most recent biomedical research into stem cells and cancer, the poem is a journey through the body's inner space and the strange habitats created by disease, including the chimeras people see when they're unwell. Maris, whose husband, Hardy, has been diagnosed with cancer, is separated from him. Her mythical journey leads though a surreal landscape, peopled by true and false physicians, god-celebrities, rabid statues, diseases hunting healthy bodies and a microbes holding their annual ball.

Sparrow tree by Gwyneth Lewis( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gwyneth Lewis's highly inventive Sparrow Tree puts nature writing in a spin, presenting a huge variety of birds, both British and American: blue tits, blackbirds, egrets, juncos, starlings, herons and hummingbirds as well as the sparrows of the title. The book explores birds as mouthpieces for inhuman song and the wild inside the mind. Launching flights of avian fancy or fantasy on several levels, Sparrow Tree moves from birdsong as proto-language to birds as decorative beings. The collection includes her already well-known How to Knit a Poem, commissioned by BBC Radio 4, and ends with images of the human word as a form of love."--Publisher's description
The meat tree by Gwyneth Lewis( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An absorbing retelling of the Blodeuwedd Mabinogion myth, this is a dangerous tale of desire, DNA, and incest within the wreckage of an ancient spaceship. An elderly investigator and his female apprentice hope to extract the fate of the ship’s crew from its antiquated virtual reality game system, but their empirical approach falters as the story tangles with their own imagination. By imposing a distance of another 200 years and millions of light years between the reader and the medieval myth, this tale of a woman made of flowers is made relevant in the distant future

?In this innovative series of public lectures at Newcastle University, leading contemporary poets speak about the craft and practice of poetry to audiences drawn from both the city and the university. The lectures are then published in book form by Bloodaxe, giving readers everywhere the oppor-tunity to learn what the poets themselves think about their own subject. Gwyneth Lewis's three lectures explore the connection linking form and politics with the content of poetry while exploring how each of these changes our understanding of time. She argues that the poet steers a path between making m
