100 poems to reach for on dark nights, selected by Julia Copus.These are poems to wander about in and commit to memory so they can be stored away in the deep heart's core; places to visit and return to at will. Poems that reawaken the senses and offer new ways of looking; that unsettle us and reconnect us to the world that surrounds us; that bring us to a place of greater clarity. Life Support includes a star-studded cast of authors including William Wordsworth, Frank O'Hara, Robert Frost, Denise Levertov and Sylvia Plath, all selected by award-winning poet Julia Copus.
Julia Copus was born in London and now lives in Somerset. She has won First Prize in the National Poetry Competition and the Forward Prize for Best Single Poem of the Year (2010).More About Julia Copus
