Summary:
Welcome to the meticulously observed world of Frieda Hughes.

Abstract:

Welcome to the meticulously observed world of Frieda Hughes. It is a world of tangible materiality constantly on the brink of change, a world populated with foxes and fire, fathers and bird men -- a world that is ultimately combustible, fearsome, and elegiacally beautiful. Like the human form, Hughes maps the landscape, both within and without, in language possessed of an almost painterly sensitivity and mastery of craft. Though a writer of distinguished literary pedigree, she is first and foremost a fully formed poet in her own right. Wooroloo is certain to be an important body of work from this promising new literary artist.
