Book DescriptionFalling Awake, winner of the Costa Award for Poetry, give[s] us the sensation of living alongside the natural world, of being a spectator to the changes that mark our mortality (Dan Chiasson, The New Yorker). Falling Awake expands on the imagery of fallen soldiers from Homer's Iliad portrayed in her previous volume, Memorial-defining life as a slowly falling weight, where beings fight against their inevitable end. Oswald reimagines classical figures such as Orpheus and Tithonus alive in an English landscape together with shadows, flies, villagers, dew, crickets-all characterized in tension between the weight of death and their own willpower.
About the AuthorOswald often works in book-length projects and is known for her interests in gardening, ecology, and music. Her second book, Dart (22), was the outcome of years of primary and secondary research into the history, environment, and community along the River Dart in Devon, England.
