TITLE

Goldengrove: New and Selected Poems

AUTHOR

Lorna Goodison
Faculty Info

MORE INFO

Lorna Goodison's "Goldengrove" is a rich and varied selection of poems from "Travelling Mercies" (2001) and "Controlling the Silver" (2004), together with twenty new, previously unpublished, poems. This is a gathering from a poet at the height of her powers. Moving seamlessly between standard English and the speech of her guinea woman grandmother, and between story and song, Goodison brings dignity to the everyday and grace to all our experiences. Derek Walcott refers to Goodison's latest poems as 'a triumph of fusions' and asks, 'What is the rare quality that has gone out of poetry that these marvellous poems restore? Joy.'
