Swirling like eddies in a river come the poems of Alice Oswald, who has quickly become one of the premier British poets writing today. Spacecraft Voyager 1 collects poetry from across her career --new poems, selections from her first and more recent books, and the entirety of her masterwork to date, Dart, winner of the 2002 T. S. Eliot Prize. Oswald's speaker--always curious, often whimsical, sometimes brash--becomes the river itself, as she gives voice to the natural world and the denizens along the river Dart in Devonshire, in their unique dialects and occupations. For the first time, Spacecraft Voyager 1 introduces American readers to an essential new poet..
