Alice Oswald Book Club

April 27, 2020, 6:30 PM8:30 PM BST

Delve into the works of the poet who gave voice to the River Dart and reinvented Homer at the spring National Poetry Library Book Club.

From her first collection, The Thing in the Gap-Stone Stile, in 1996, Alice Oswald has engaged with the natural world and ecology, informed by her work as a gardener, though she resists being defined as a nature poet.

Look at poems from across Oswald’s career and see why The Times described her as “inheritor of some of Britain’s greatest poetic voices, an heir to Ted Hughes, Seamus Heaney and Geoffrey Hill.”
