Over the past three years Alice Oswald has been recording conversations with people who live and work on the River Dart in Devon.

Using these records and voices as a sort of poetic census, she creates a narrative of the river, tracking its life from source to sea. The voices are wonderfully varied and idiomatic - they include a poacher, a ferry man, a sewage worker and milk worker, a forester, swimmers and canoeists - and are interlinked with historic and mythic voices, drowned voices, dreaming voices and marginal notes which act as markers along the way.

Author bio:

Alice Oswald lives in Devon and is married with two children. Dart is her second collection. Her first, The Thing in the Gap-Stone Stile, won the Forward Prize for Best First Collection in 1996.
