Emerald

(Pocket)
Beskrivning:

An elegy to a lost mother, Emerald is the moving new collection from prize-winning poet Ruth Padel

‘Here in deep earth, the black

blossom of mourning still sifting within me

I remembered that emerald was my birthstone …’

Prize-winning poet Ruth Padel’s heartfelt new collection is a grief observed: an elegy for her mother on her death at the age of ninety-seven.

Exploring the riches of emerald lore, Padel follows the glint of green – ‘green for awakening / for bringing life back from the dead’ – from memories of her mother, a naturalist, to the black honeycomb of a Colombian emerald mine and sunset-pink of the Emerald City, Jaipur. Beneath everything shines the jewel itself, ‘the only stone in which the flaws are prized’.

Beautifully carved and cadenced, Emerald is a moving chronicle of value and loss, and a celebration of all that is precious in the life that remains.
