Edgelands by Michael Symmons Roberts 9780099539773



In the spaces between the city and the countryside, a wilderness lurks - untamed, unnoticed, and utterly captivating. "Edgelands" is a poetic exploration of these liminal landscapes, the forgotten fringes where nature reclaims her sovereignty. Paul Farley and Michael Symmons Roberts guide us on a lyrical journey through England's true wildlands, those overlooked corners where urban sprawl and rural idyll collide. With eloquent prose, they unveil the raw beauty and resilience of these in-between places, inviting us to embrace the untended, the ignored, and the gloriously unkempt.

Paul Farley is a poet and broadcaster, celebrated for his vivid evocations of the natural world. Michael Symmons Roberts, an acclaimed poet and novelist, brings his masterful command of language to this unique collaboration. Together, they weave a tapestry of words that captures the essence of England's edgelands, inviting readers to see these liminal spaces through new eyes and find wonder in the wilderness on our very doorsteps.
