Woods Etc. Summary

Woods Etc. by Alice Oswald

Woods etc. is Alice Oswald's third book of poems, and follows on from the success of her widely acclaimed river-poem, Dart, which won the T. S. Eliot Prize in 2002. The poems in her new book compress this uniquely ruminative voice into a dazzlingly various sequence of lyrics about the natural order and the individual life within. Written over a period of several years, these poems combine abrupt honesty with an exuberant rhetorical confidence, at times recalling the oral and anonymous tradition with which they share such affinity.

Woods Etc. Reviews

"'Alice Oswald is making a new kind of poetry... she is in the front rank of writers, in poetry and prose, who are not content to work only with what exists already.' Jeanette Winterson; 'Oswald has soul in riverfuls' David Wheatley"
