    schema:reviewBody ""In 1939, following her marriage, the poet Lynette Roberts went to live in a small village in Wales. The experience became the source of some of her extraordinary poetry." "Her diary observes daily life in a Welsh village in wartime with a poetic intensity: harvest, the arrival of evacuees, a frozen water pump - cadences of voices and the effects of light and rain. Seven haunting stories weave modernist myths of Wales, while her magazine articles explore Welsh life with an anthropologist's eye. Roberts's restless intelligence never limits itself to the local. She writes about Picasso and Le Corbusier, about a visit to Spain on the trail of Lorca, the drama of afternoon tea with the Sitwells, the comic disaster of taking her young children to visit T. S. Eliot." "This collection of her prose writings, most published here for the first time, accompanied by evocative family photographs, discloses the world that she transformed into poetry."--BOOK JACKET." ;
