Description

POETRY BOOK SOCIETY CHOICE

The Thing in the Gap-Stone Stile, Alice Oswald’s first collection of poems, announced the arrival of a distinctive new voice. Shortlisted for the T. S. Eliot Prize, the book introduced readers to her meditative, intensely musical style, and her breath-taking gift for visionary writing.

‘The poetry of Alice Oswald arrives like a zephyr . . . a fresh and exciting first collection.’ Kathleen Jamie, Times Literary Supplement

‘an inspired debut of lightly-worn wisdom and verbal panache.’ John Fuller

‘Alice Oswald throws the windows of the imagination open; she places a fingertip on the pulse of tradition, and proves it is still very much alive.’ The Times
