'Owen Sheers is one of the most exciting new talents around.'
--- Carol Ann Duffy

About the Author:

Owen Sheers was born in 1974, spent a portion of his childhood abroad, then returned to live on a farm in Abergavenny when he was nine. Educated at Oxford, with an MA in Creative Writing from the UEA writing programme, he has worked in television in London and Wales. He hit the limelight in 2000 when for The Times of January 1st, 2000, David Bailey photographed the foremost practitioners in the arts and sciences together with their choice of the person they expected to carry the discipline forward: Poet Laureate Andrew Motion selected Owen Sheers as the poet to watch. His first collection, The Blue Book, was shortlisted for the Forward Poetry Prize Best First Collection and ACW Book of the Year 2001. Skirrid Hill, his second collection, won a Somerset Maugham Prize in 2006 and was longlisted for Welsh Book of the Year. Owen Sheers was recently appointed as the first-ever artist in residence for the Welsh Rugby Union.

Book Description Poetry Wales Press, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Ideas of separation and divorce the geographical divides of borders, the separation of the dead and the living, the movement from childhood to adulthood, and the end of relationships drive this poetry collection from one of Great Britain's rising young talents. The collection revolves around the poems "Y Gaer" and "The Hillfort," the titles themselves suggesting the linguistic divide in Wales, from poems concerned with childhood, a Welsh landscape, and family to an outward-looking vision that is both geographic and historic.".
