Poems, 1960-2000 by Fleur Adcock( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fleur Adcock is one of Britain's most accomplished poets. Her poised, ironic poems are tense and tightly controlled as well as shrewdly laconic, and often chilling as she unmasks the deceptions of love or unravels family lives. Disarmingly conversational in style, they are remarkable for their psychological insight and their unsentimental, mischievously casual view of personal relationships. Born in New Zealand, she has explored questions of identity and rootedness throughout her work, both in relation to her personal allegiances to her native and adopted countries as well as her family histor

"The incidents in this collection range from childhood experiences and family events through glimpses of steet life in Thatcher's Britain to deaths and premonitions of death, individual and universal, under the shadow of the nuclear threat. There is a group of fictional narratives, and a handful of the erotic, or, more properly, anti-erotic poems for which ... Adcock is well-known. There are also celebrations of places, reflections on art and language, and affectionate tributes to friends."--Back cover

Letters from darkness : poems by Daniela Crăsnaru( Book )

4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection shows two quite different facets of [Crăsnaru's] talent. The first part is a selection from work published during the 1980s, using a subtle, figurative, allusive style developed as a way of conveying messages to discerning readers without incurring official wrath. The second half of the book ... contains a selection of outspokenly subversive poems, which she wrote during the last years of the Ceauşescu regime, but had to keep hidden in a box of onions in her aunt's cellar, as her own flat was liable to be searched. ..."--Back cover
The land ballot by Fleur Adcock( Book )

"A land ballot was the means by which Fleur Adcock's grandparents, immigrants from Manchester during World War I, were able to bid for a piece of native bush on the slopes of Mount Pirongia in the North Island of New Zealand. Their task was to turn this unpromising acreage into a dairy farm. When things didn't work out as they had hoped much of the responsibility for running the farm and engineering their eventual escape fell on their teenage son, Adcock's father. This sequence of poems follows the course of their efforts and builds up a portrait of a small, isolated community"--Publisher information
