Books Info:

Glad of These Times free pdf A celebrated winner of fiction's Orange Prize, Helen Dunmore is as spellbinding a storyteller in her poetry as in her novels. "Glad of These Times" is full of haunting, joyous and wry narratives. These new poems explore the fleetingness of life, its sweetness and intensity, the short time we have on earth and the pleasures of the earth, and death as the frame which sharpens everything and gives it shape. "Glad of These Times" is Helen Dunmore's first poetry book since "Out of the Blue: Poems 1975-2001", a comprehensive selection drawing on seven previous collections. It brings together poems of great lyricism, feeling and artistry.
