Feverfew (Indigo Dreams) is the new collection by poet Anna Saunders, (‘A poet of quite remarkable gifts’ Bernard O’Donoghue) and author of 5 titles including the critically acclaimed Ghosting for Beginners. (Indigo Dreams).
Feverfew is a bold and intense collection where candid, confessional poems meet richly lyrical, mythically inspired verse in which Phaethon, Jupiter, Pan, and Aphrodite voice a contemporary disquiet about a planet threatened by war, politics, and human-led climate change.
Moving at a ‘fiery, fast-paced and exhilarating’ pace,Feverfew is a ‘beautiful and necessary collection’ (Penny Shuttle), ‘rich with obsession, sensuousness and potency’ (Ben Ray) and offering poetry as a subversive, passionate and powerful medicine for life. ‘Anna Saunders’ poems are all fire’ (Helen Ivory).
