Empty Nest: Poems For Families

£14.99

In stock

In this stunning anthology Carol Ann Duffy has selected 99 poems exploring parenting. The special bond between parent and child is both powerful and unique. And yet there is a time when that bond must ease, where our grip on that dear one must loosen, when we must let them go whether we are ready to or not.

Some of our very favourite poets feature in the selection, such as Elizabeth Bishop, Jackie Kay, Simon Armitage, Shakespeare, Imtiaz Dharker, Seamus Heaney and Don Paterson. These poems are by turns wry, affecting, profound, melancholy and wise; they will console and comfort those suddenly facing a house that’s much cleaner but also much quieter than it was.

There is something here for every reader to treasure.
