Met Office Advises Caution

    By

    In this assured debut, Rebecca Watts positions herself where Wordsworth, Frost and Hughes have stood before her, and with fresh perspective, a wholly original tone, and an openness to the possibilities of form reinvigorates and remaps the landscapes of English nature poetry for a twenty-first-century audience. From ecology, social history and wide-open spaces to the domestic and intimate, these poems approach their often-unusual subjects with the clarity and matter-of-factness of Simon Armitage and a wit that recalls U. A. Fanthorpe, Dorothy Parker and Stevie Smith, spinning memorable scenes and vivid images from the material of plain language."
