Dart, Paperback / softback Book

Dart Paperback / softback

Description

Over the past three years Alice Oswald has been recording conversations with people who live and work on the River Dart in Devon.

Using these records and voices as a sort of poetic census, she creates a narrative of the river, tracking its life from source to sea.

The voices are wonderfully varied and idiomatic - they include a poacher, a ferryman, a sewage worker and milk worker, a forester, swimmers and canoeists - and are interlinked with historic and mythic voices: drowned voices, dreaming voices and marginal notes which act as markers along the way.
