Description
Information
In her own time, Charlotte Mew's bold representation of the human condition impressed writers as diverse as Virginia Woolf, Marianne Moore and Siegfried Sassoon. Her power and originality came from a stark, restrained lyricism which tackled themes of love and death head on, without sentimentality. Mew's poetry describes moments of being where contradictory impulses meet and resonate - where bravery meets vulnerabili ty, beauty confronts ugliness, and peace suddenly becomes war. Looking into 'the heart of hidden things', she writes from the cusp of desolation with energy and verve. This edition brings together all Mew's extant poetic work as well as 'The Wheat', a haunting and rhythmical prose-poem.
