Product Details

Feverfew by Anna Saunders (Indigo Dreams) epitomises poetry’s alchemical and transformative power.
All that ‘haunts sleep’ is subject for this ‘beautiful and necessary collection’ ( Penny Shuttle) yet by speaking of these subjects (desire, heartache, grief, fear for the future of the planet), and bringing them out into the light, an antidote is offered.  In Feverfew - herb and words are offered a balm to pain.
 
Anna Saunders’ poems are all fire, all earth, all sky; are creaturely; sing vivid, sing passionate, sing barefoot. They are not afraid of the dark - they draw down the moon and drink deep of it.   Fever Few is extremely good medicine for whatever might ail you, so kick off your shoes and wade in. Helen Ivory
Pertinent, nuanced, fiery, fast-paced and exhilarating, these poems possess a complex lyric palette. There is much magic here. A beautiful and necessary collection.
Penelope Shuttle

‘Rich with obsession, sensuousness and potency, subversive, with a dark power all of its own – a consummate handling of the poetic form, and a real must-read!’
