Review:

She has perfect rhythm, great delicacy and a rather Chinese yet very locally British sense of landscape...her poetry does seem to me to approach greatness. --Peter Levi

Frances Horovitz inherits the mantle of Kathleen Raine and of Frances Bellerby. It is an honour to be able to say that her voice is not that of the "age" but of the earth. --Anne Stevenson

Her COLLECTED POEMS of 1985 went largely unnoticed. And yet a few of these poems are better than anything published here in the last decade... The COLLECTED POEMS are, after all, what we are left with when all the symposia and elegies have withered. One is reminded, gratefully, of John Updike's appreciation of Wallace Stevens: "What a good use of life, to leave behind one beautiful book". --James Wood, The Times

About the Author:

Frances Horovitz was greatly loved and respected not only as a poet, but also as a broadcaster and performer of poetry. She was one of the finest poetry readers this country had prduced, possessing a rare ability to hear a poem and become its voice. She published four collections of poems, including WATER OVER STONE (Enitharmon Press, 1980) and SNOW LIGHT, WATER LIGHT (Bloodaxe Books, 1983). She died in 1983, aged 45, after a long illness. Her COLLECTED POEMS (1985/2011) was edited by her husband, the poet and critic Roger Garfitt.
