The collection of a lifetime from the bestselling novelist, poet -- and
cultural phenomenon Before she became one of the world's most important and
loved novelists, Margaret Atwood was a poet. Dearly is her first collection
in over a decade. It brings together many of her most recognisable and
celebrated themes, but distilled -- from minutely perfect descriptions of
the natural world to startlingly witty encounters with aliens, from
pressing political issues to myth and legend. By turns moving, playful and
wise, the poems gathered in Dearly are about absences and endings, ageing
and retrospection, but also about gifts and renewals. They explore bodies
and minds in transition, as well as the everyday objects and rituals that
embed us in the present. Werewolves, sirens and dreams make their
appearance, as do various forms of animal life and fragments of our damaged
environment. Dearly is a pure Atwood delight, and long-term readers and new
fans alike will treasure its insight, empathy and humour.
