These poetry books are 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.
Holding Close continues to examine Prior-Pitt's earlier themes about relationships and domesticity but here is a greater focus on ageing and a deeper contemplation on her approach to death.
She makes you laugh, she makes you cry, she makes you think.
