Selected poems 1987 - 2017.
This selected works brings together many of Pauline Prior-Pitt's poems about being a woman. Taken from her seven collections, the poems, alternately funny and poignant, beautifully reflect the preoccupation of a woman's life, covering birth, death, and everything in between - including the mysterious relationship between men and crumbs.
"Everyone needs a Pauline Prior-Pitt in their lives and on their bookshelves." - Maureen Lipman
Pauline's poetry is used extensively by lecturers in FE for young people and adults returning to learn and for people with literacy difficulties. The poems are accessible, not daunting, and provide a 'way in' to poetry. Many of the poems are of a domestic nature and students identify with them. They can also feel encouraged to write their own poems about similar experiences and on similar themes.
