Description:
Winner of the Costa Book of the Year for her final collection, 'Inside the Wave', Helen Dunmore was as spellbinding storyteller in her poetry and in her prose. Her haunting narratives draw us into darkness, engaging our fears and hopes in poetry of rare luminosity, nowhere more so than in 'Inside the Wave', in its exploration of the borderline between the living and the dead - the underworld and the human living world - and the exquisitely intense being of both. All her poetry casts a bright, revealing light on the living world, by land and sea, on love, longing and loss. 'Counting Backwards' is a retrospective covering ten collections written over four decades, bringing together all the poems she included in her earlier selection, 'Out of the Blue' (2001), with all those from her three later collections, 'Glad of These Times' (2007), 'The Malarkey' (2012) and 'Inside the Wave' (2017), along with a number of earlier poems.
