Alice Oswald was trained as a classicist at New College, University of
Oxford. Her first collection of poetry, The Thing in the Gap-Stone
Stile (1996), received a Forward Poetry Prize for Best First
Collection. Oswald often works in book-length projects and is known
for her interests in gardening, ecology, and music. Her second book,
Dart (2002), was the outcome of years of primary and secondary
research into the history, environment, and community along the River
Dart in Devon, England. Oswald's other collections of poetry include
Woods, etc. (2005), winner of a Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize; Weeds
and Wild Flowers (2009), illustrated by Jessica Greenman; A Sleepwalk
on the Severn (2009); Memorial (2011), a reworking of Homer's Iliad
that has received high critical praise for its innovative approach and
stunning imagery, which won the 2013 Warwick Prize for writing; and
Falling Awake (2016). Her latest book is Nobody (2019), a collage of
water-stories, taken mostly from the Odyssey, about a minor character,
abandoned on a stony island. Oswald's many honors and awards include
an Eric Gregory Award, an Arts Foundation Award for Poetry, a Forward
Prize for Best Single Poem, and a Ted Hughes Awards.
