HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELSPETH SMITH!
We're delighted to wish one of England's finest living poets a very happy birthday this week! Elspeth Smith turns 92! She is known for her gnomic, witty, poignant and sometimes sinister 'little poems' of a few lines - no other poet since the Imagistes has written so well, so briefly. her compact gems - often recalling parties during WW2, and their eerie aftermath - speak so powerfully of a life lived, of love long ago... We have published two of her collections, KEEPING BUSY and also, DANGEROUS CAKES! May she long continue to delight and trouble our glittering surfaces, and deeper dreams...
