Frost On the Window, and Other Poems by Mary Stewart lands on the |> SALE <| shelves in my shop.
Hodder & Stoughton, 1990, Hardback in dust wrapper.
From the cover: Classical legend and location, myth and magic, birds and animals and the love of natural beauty are all reflected in this lyrically accessible collection of poems by the novelist Mary Stewart.
Mary Stewart had written most of her poetry by the late forties. Ten years later she began writing novels, and a love of the same subjects is the hallmark of her contemporary fiction. When in the 1970s she turned to her even more successful novels of Merlin, she started writing poetry again, and the Poems of Merlin, at the end of this book, are ones which first appeared in such bestselling novels as The Crystal Cave and The Wicked Day.
Frost on the Window offers a privileged glimpse into the imagination of a rather private person whose novels have made her a much-loved household name.
