Rookie: Selected Poems by Caroline Bird

Rookie: Selected Poems by Caroline Bird

£12.99Price

Rookie presents a formidable body of work composed over two decades from one of the poetry world's most energetic and consistently compelling voices.

 

Caroline Bird has a startling instinct for metaphor, the courage of her choice of subjects and the integrity of her witness, set her apart: a poem is a risk, and it has to be a risk worth taking for the poet and for the reader.


Starting with Looking through Letterboxes in 2002 when she was fifteen years old, she has published six Carcanet books, culminating in The Air Year which was awarded the Forward Prize in 2020, shortlisted for the Polari Book Prize and the Costa Poetry Prize, and a Book of the Year in the Telegraph, Guardian and White Review.
