Dart by Alice Oswald - winner of the T. S. Eliot Prize in 2012 - is a mesmerizing and stunningly original book, a poetic journey along the river Dart, the voice of the river interwoven with the voices of the people who live and work along its course.
Alice Oswald lives in Devon and is married with two children. Dart is her second collection. Her first, The Thing in the Gap-Stone Stile, won the Forward Prize for Best First Collection in 1996.
'The Thing in the Gap-Stone Stile seductively commands delighted attention. In an age where "nature" poetry and spirituality are unfashionable, it is always exciting when someone does the job with panache and without being boring.' Guardian
