Christmas Poems

by U.A. Fanthorpe
£9.99   paperback  Enitharmon Press (2002)

Christmas Poems by U.A. Fanthorpe UA Fanthorpe's Christmas Poems gathers together the poems she wrote and sent to friends as Christmas cards from 1974 to 2002.
 
Now readers can enjoy Fanthorpe's yearly output in its entirety. Her subject matter covers a broad range of seasonal characters, from angels to personified Christmas trees, and a variety of styles to match, from moments of beautiful lyricism to the comically touching Gloucestershire foxes begging baby Jesus to visit:
 
'Come live wi we under Westridge / Where the huntin folk be few'.
 
Fanthorpe is witty and highly original, rethinking the Christmas story from quirky angles, to create her own alternative Christmas legend – from the cat and the sheep-dog left out of the stable, to the wicked fairy's gifts for Jesus.
 
Above all, these poems are celebrations of Christmas joy and love.
