Storms Will Tell : Selected Poems
by Janet Frame




Overview -
Janet Frame was born in Dunedin in 1924. 'Storms Will Tell' is a comprehensive selection of her thought-provoking poems drawn from 'The Pocket Mirror' and 'The Goose Bath'. Reviews include: 'She has shown, so quietly, a mastery of the English language which dazzles one beyond ordinary praise' - Naomi Mitchison; 'There is a range of forms...There is even greater richness of content and image. Like the compass she writes of, Frame's is a sensibility which seeks to taste every drop of distance. It would be hard to find a more fecund sense of the natural world in any recent writer' - Bill Manhire; 'Everything she presents is illuminated and thrown into sharp focus by the limpid clarity of a highly individual vision; she can be detached and passionate at the same time' - Fleur Adcock.
