Like Something Flying Backwards free pdf "One of America's oddest, best, and most appealing poets" - "Publishers Weekly". C.D. Wright's work is enormously varied: she is an experimental writer, a Southern writer, and a socially committed writer, yet she continuously reinvents herself with each new volume. Much of her poetry is rooted in the landscape and people of her childhood in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas. This first UK edition of her work presents a wide range of her lyrics, narratives, prose poems and odes. Based on "Steal Away" (2003), a finalist for the Griffin Poetry Prize, its selection has been expanded to include more later work as well as new poems not yet published in book form in the US, including a major extended poem, "Rising, Falling, Hovering."
