About Book

Taking for her subject our human planet, or what Robert Lowell called 'this sweet volcanic cone', Alice Oswald has chosen 101 poems which map the border between the personal and natural worlds. Including poems by William Barnes, Robert Frost, John Clare, Gerard Manley Hopkins, W.H. Auden, Stevie Smith, Ted Hughes, Hugh MacDiarmid, John Ashbery and many others, The Thunder Mutters: 101 Poems for the Planet casts its net worldwide, historically and geographically, engaging restlessly with the many-centred energies of the natural world.
  • Edited By: Alice Oswald

    Alice Oswald lives in Devon and is married with three children. Dart, her second collection, won the T. S. Eliot Prize in 2002. Her third collection, Woods etc, was a Poetry Book Society Choice and was shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best Collection and the T. S. Eliot Prize. A Sleepwalk on the Severn appeared in 2009, as did Weeds and Wild Flowers, her collaboration with the artist Jessica Greenman.
