(1950– ),

poet and translator, born in Birmingham and educated at the University of Bristol; she now lives in Wales. Her volumes include Crowded by Shadows (1977); Earth Studies and Other Voyages (1982), including a geographical‐ecological meditation in the form of a 19‐poem sequence, celebrating the beauty and fragility of the earth and its inhabitants; Beware Falling Tortoises (1987), which wryly questions accidental death and individual worth and survival; and Sing for the Taxman (1993). Her poetry springs from saga, ancient history, contemporary politics, and everyday life, and is marked by a distinctive lyrical detachment.
