Addresses and Dreams By Pauline Prior-Pitt

Availability: In stock



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. 

In Addresses & Dreams, the poems continue themes that Pauline began in her book 'Waiting Women'; poems about women's lives, their friendships, children, parents, clothes, domestic chores, love and death. In this collection, she takes a look at ageing. 

She makes you laugh, she makes you cry, she makes you think.
