Selected Poems

Kathleen Jamie

From Shelf: Favourite Books I read in 2022

A timely career retrospective including material from Kathleen Jamie's earlier collections and featuring writing on her recurrent themes of nature, language, and human and animal consciousness.

Kathleen Jamie's Selected Poems gathers together some of the finest work by one of the foremost poets currently writing in English. Although Jamie is perhaps best known for her writing on nature, landscape, and place, Selected Poems shows the full and remarkably diverse range of her work - and why many regard her work as crucially relevant to our troubled age. No poet currently writing has a keener eye or ear; no poet has paid more careful attention to the other consciousnesses with whom we share the planet - and no poet has Jamie's almost miraculous ability to show us just how the world might look when the human eye ceases to gaze on it. This exceptional collection of poetry, spanning several decades, allows readers to chart the development of one of our most important contemporary talents, and serves as perfect introduction to her work.
