Letter from a Far Country by Gillian Clarke

Gillian Clarke's poems are letters from the far countries of personal and ancestral memories, of places and moments of insight. Her acclaimed title poem explores the buried histories of women's lives, the enduring responsibilities that link generations and ensure the continuance of language and traditions. Rooted in rural Wales, this collection celebrates the sources of strength and continuity that bind people to landscape and community.
