Books Info:

Inside the Stretch of My Heart free pdf Inside the Stretch of My Heart is the companion volume to the collection The Dream of Stairs: A Poem Cycle, which was privately printed as a posthumous memorial volume in 1975, a year after Susan Noble's untimely death in 1974 at the age of 31. 'The muse has struck me!' Susan had announced in 1965 with typically light-hearted self-depreciation, and from that time onwards she wrote the poems in batches of half a dozen or more, in what she described as manic bursts of creativity. But these poems are anything but light-hearted, and even a first reading will reveal clearly that levity is not on the menu in a universe 'Where there are no jokes / And people do not pretend.' Susan's output in the last ten years of her life was prolific, but a clear thematic structure and underlying development dictated the final order of that original poignant collection. To mark the fortieth anniversary of her death, the poems in this present collection have been published for the first time, along with a revised, expanded edition of The Dream of Stairs. A companion volume to these two poetry collections, A Flock of Blackbirds, featuring a selection of Susan's novellas and short stories, and her novel Between Empty Tramlines are also being simultaneously published. Susan's exceptional sensitivity was reflected in the prolific outpouring of poems that make up The Dream of Stairs and Inside the Stretch of My Heart. In these intense, haunting poems, she chronicles her personal response to the world around her, while vividly portraying the inner landscape of her mental and emotional struggle. Profits from the sales of all four volumes are being donated to three charities: Mind, the Samaritans and Sane. Facsimiles of the original typescripts and manuscripts are available online at: About the author Brought up in South London, Susan Noble, was the second of three children. Her childhood was enriched by being part of a large and closely-knit Jewish family. Unfortunately stricken by polio (then known as infantile paralysis) in her early years, Susan went through life with a degree of physical handicap which she was to overcome with courage and determination. Educated at Croydon High School, Susan studied English at Somerville College, Oxford. After graduating, Susan worked in London, first at the Royal National Institute for the Blind, dictating books for transcription into Braille, and later at the National Central Library in London, where she qualified as a Chartered Librarian. -
