In the Land of the Giants | 03-May-13

George Szirtes has won the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE) Poetry Award for his collection In the Land of the Giants. His daughter Helen's illustrations (done when she was a young girl) add nuance to these emotionally complex poems:

but there's no way of knowing.

The book also includes the poet's translations from the original Hungarian of poets Sándor Weöres and Zoltán Zelk.
