Author(s): Craig Raine
In How Snow Falls, Craig Raine addresses themes of transformation, in human nature and the natural world - confronting the intimacies of love and death, desire and sex, memory and commemoration. These are uncompromising, mischievous, charismatic poems.

A former editor of Quarto and Poetry Editor at Faber, he is now a Fellow in English at New College, Oxford and Editor of Arete, the arts tri-quarterly.
