Arias by Sharon Olds


Available – Ready for despatch or collection within 5 - 7 days


Following her recent Odes, the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, Sharon Olds, gives us a new collection of poems that sing of a woman’s intimate life and political conscience. The atom bomb, ‘Breaking Bad,’ the cervix, Trayvon Martin, her mother’s return from the dead: the peerless Sharon Olds once again takes up subject matter that is both difficult and ordinary, elusive and everywhere. Each aria is shaped by its unique melody and moral logic, as Olds stands centre stage to account for her own late romance and chance wisdom, and faces the tragic life of our nation and our planet.
