The collection of a lifetime from the bestselling novelist and poet.

By turns moving, playful and wise, the poems gathered in Dearly are about absences and endings, ageing and retrospection, but also about gifts and renewals. They explore bodies and minds in transition, as well as the everyday objects and rituals that embed us in the present. Werewolves, sirens and dreams make their appearance, as do various forms of animal life and fragments of our damaged environment.

Before she became one of the world’s most important and loved novelists, Atwood was a poet. Dearly is her first collection in over a decade. It brings together many of her most recognizable and celebrated themes, but distilled - from minutely perfect descriptions of the natural world to startlingly witty encounters with aliens, from pressing political issues to myth and legend. It is a pure Atwood delight, and long-term readers and new fans alike will treasure its insight, empathy and humour.

AUDIENCE: For readers of Atwood’s wildly popular novels; and for poetry and Can-Lit lovers alike.

Praise for Margaret Atwood’s poetry:

“Atwood’s poems are short, glistening with terse, bright images, untentative, closing like a vise…A plain, explicit poetry, perfectly sure of itself.”—New York Times

The Door is one of the best books by one of the best poets writing in English.”—Times Literary Supplement

“Margaret Atwood is best known, of course, as a novelist. But she brings to her poetry the same sharp eye and stinging wit.”—Washington Post

“Atwood is always vital, powerful, magnetically readable…Readers who know only her novels really owe it to themselves to read her poems.”—Booklist
