Kate Clanchy's Selected Poems gathers together poetry from her three prize-winning collections, Slattern, Samarkand, and Newborn. Clanchy's poems are about men and boys, school and home, the foreign and the familiar, and the grand adventure of parenthood - but above all about love, in all its forms. Kate Clanchy's poems are much broadcast, translated, and anthologized; they are read at weddings, taught in classrooms, and passed from hand to hand. Her Selected Poems shows why: for those new to her work, this book is the perfect introduction to a witty, lyrical, keen-eyed, and truly accessible poet. Long-term fans will be delighted to find Clanchy's very best work gathered together in a single volume.
'Kate Clanchy . . . writes about what we know in such a way that we come to know it better, more sharply, in better colours' Helen Dunmore
