descriptionIn Wonder, Lust & Itchy Feet an intelligent and eager woman—daughter, lover, mother and wife—collects for the first time a selection of poetry from her first four decades of life. Unhesitatingly she exposes her feelings about intimate and family relationships and clearly expresses the loving and supportive values that she hopes societies can live by. There is disappointment and rebellion here; but also wisdom. There is love, pain, regret, hope; a desire to love and live to the full, to find life's joy, for tomorrow we die; a felt and generous understanding that a new generation will take our place, live and love in their turn. The simple language belies frequent sophistication of structure, delightful and meaningful word-play and entertaining rhyme. There is a wide range of reference garnered from rich experience of life and travel in many cultures and countries. Sally Dellow has a highly intelligent understanding of the right words and concepts to express, and communicate effectively, deep-felt universal experiences in a highly personal way. Among the many striking and strong poems in this collection, ‘Sand’ is one that has the resonance of a modern classic.
