Kindred is Ruth Bidgood's first new volume for eight years. In it she continues her discoveries in the locality of her home in mid Wales, with its deserted farms, its mountains, lakes and forests, and those people who remain, working the land.

In the manner of Edward Thomas, Ruth Bidgood transforms ordinary English into a language which makes her poetry immediate and accessible, yet demands a close reading to plumb its depths.

Ruth Bidgood was born in Blaendulais, near Neath, educated at Oxford, and worked as a coder in Alexandria, Egypt in World War Two. She has lived in mid-Wales since the mid-sixties. The author of several prize-winning volumes of poetry, she also writes local history.
