for Selected Poems by Kevin Crossley-Holland
Kevin Crossley-Holland is well known as a poet, translator of Anglo-Saxon, re-teller of traditional tales, and writer for children. He recently toured for his latest award-winning children's book, the first volume in an Arthurian trilogy, The Seeing Stone (Scholastic), which was short listed for the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year, and was awarded both the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize and the Welsh Book Council Prize; his earlier book, Storm, won a Carnegie Medal. This collection of his poetry is drawn from his seven previous collections. His poems are notable for their perceptive and warm record of relationships, especially that of father and child; their powerful response to the landscape of Norfolk and Suffolk; and their awareness of continuities and dislocations. This collection also includes an impressive section of new poems.
