Woods Etc


This 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. These poems compress this uniquely ruminative voice into a dazzlingly various sequence of lyrics about natural order and individual life within.

Woods etc. is Alice Oswald’s third collection of poems, and follows the success of her widely acclaimed river-poem Dart, which was awarded the T. S. Eliot Prize in 2002. Extending the concerns of Dart and 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.
