Summary:
"Mary Webb's poetry highlights her extraordinary power as an observer of the English countryside. Webb shares her feelings of physical and spiritual ecstasy in her poems, and brings her readers closer to the experience of living in intimate sympathy with nature. Possessing hyper-acute senses, she simply saw, smelled, and heard Shropshire with a sharpness and clarity that others did not. Webb's exceptional power of observation was in no way limited to the world of nature. As a champion of the underdog and the non-conformist, her poems also explore the difficult subjects of loneliness, human transience, and impending death."--MaryWebb.org.
