Description: Collects poems that explore the nature of change - in the body and the natural world, and in the shifting relationships between people.
Synopsis: Jo Shapcott's award-winning first three collections, gathered in "Her Book: Poems 1988-1998", revealed her to be a writer of ingenuous, politically acute and provocative poetry, and rightly earned her a reputation as one of the most original and daring voices of her generation. In "Of Mutability", Shapcott is found writing at her most memorable and bold. In a series of poems that explore the nature of change - in the body and the natural world, and in the shifting relationships between people - these poems look freshly but squarely at mortality. By turns grave and playful, arresting and witty, the poems in "Of Mutability" celebrate each waking moment as though it might be the last, and in so doing restore wonder to the to the smallest of encounters.

New Primary Anglo Saxon fiction
Freedom for Bron
By: N. S. BLACKMAN
Slave boy Bron does his best to avoid the wrath – and the stick – of his master, the grumpy village blacksmith. But Bron’s life is dull and lacking in family or friendship. And he is always hungry. Then one day, a suprising Saxon lord arrives – passing through the village on his way to an important war council. It’s a chance for Bron to escape his lowly life and prove just how valuable one young lad can be – to the lord, to his village and ultimately, to the whole kingdom. A tale of friendship, divided loyalties and the desire to belong, this adventure will thrill young readers.
