Red Leaves PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Red Leaves free pdf An especially beautiful new collection from a gifted poet whose individual voice is unlike any other. Like her three previous books this teems with vivid images often drawn from Indian or Chinese sources or the poet's own experience of those places. The final section, 'The Imprint of India' directly explores the impact of India, so crucial in her origins as a writer. However much of the book is closer to home. At its emotional chore is the deaths of her mother and brother in a single year - these dominate one section but pervade the whole book in a way that is subtle, restrained but deeply moving. Poems about coming home and being a writer blend in very naturally with this overriding theme. Diana Bridge's poems appear effortless but they show meticulous attention to detail and a fine sense of how a good poem works.

About Diana Bridge

Diana Bridge was educated at Victoria University of Wellington with further study at the School of Oriental Studies, London, and at the University of Auckland (where she was a Senior Scholar awarded the Rewi Alley Scholarship). Her PhD in Chinese Literature is from the Australian National University, Canberra. Diana burst into print, a fully formed and technically superb poet, later in life than most. Her poems have appeared in many literary journals and she has published three critically acclaimed collections of poetry, Landscape with Lines (AUP, 1996)- The Girls on the Wall (AUP, 1999) and Porcelain (AUP, 2001).
