One of our Skylarks is an exceptional collection from a poet at the height of her powers.

Now in her mid-eighties, Alison Bielski, continues to produce finely tuned work that is layered with myth and rooted in a deep sense of place. The collection takes the reader on a journey from south Wales and the borders to north Wales, but this is much more than landscape poetry, rather it is the lyricism that inhabits the land and the history that it breathes. Beautifully crafted, visually rich poetry.

Alison Bielski has published numerous collections and regularly contributes to magazines. Often drawing on Welsh folklore and mythology, some of her experimental visual poetry has been exhibited in Wales and abroad. She has won numerous prizes for her poetry and has been published in many European countries and in India as well as the UK and the US. Her previous collections include Twentieth Century Flood (1964), Across the Burning Sand (1970), Monogrampoems (1971), Eve (1973), Mermaid Poems (1974), The Lovetree (1974), Seth (1980), Night Sequence (1981), Eagles (1983) and Sacramental Sonnets (2003). She has also published several booklets on local history, and is a member of Academi.
