Showcasing poems from her five earlier collections as well as an assortment of new poetry, this landmark collection celebrates one of Wales's most important and consistent poets, Ruth Bidgood. In addition to many of her most characteristic poems, including "Sheep in the Hedge," "At Strata Florida," and "Edward Bache," which reflect her often darkly suggestive and mysterious themes and evoke the storied landscape and history of mid-Wales, the anthology features a selection of Ruth Bidgood's more recent work. Among them are "Llanvetherine Angel," from her series about angels, "Bereft," an elegy to R. S. Thomas, and a persuasive group called "Riding the Flood."
