The Missing


WINNER SEAMUS HEANEY CENTRE PRIZE FOR POETRY SHORTLISTED FOR THE FELIX DENNIS PRIZE FOR BEST FIRST COLLECTION FORWARD POETRY PRIZES 2009 Poetry Bank Choice and Poetry Book Society Recommendation. In 2006 'The Send-Off', an elegy for a lost child, was broadcast on Woman's Hour on BBC Radio 4 and the issues it raised - ante-natal testing, grief, guilt, the family, women's lives - raged on for weeks in blogs and notice boards. But no one wondered what the poem was about. It was crystal clear. The poems in Sian Hughes debut collection, The Missing are direct and emotional. They do not hide behind imagery. They deal head on with the heart of shame, with parenting, illness, loss, regret and falling in love with the wrong people.
