Join Paul Maddern in welcoming these three fantastic poets for a celebration of their new collections.
What Planet? is Miriam Gamble’s third collection. It is dark, poignant and uproarious, setting the individuality of perception and the inventiveness of memory against fixed certainties, probing the chaos and madness of this post-truth world.
Pigeon Songs is Eoghan Walls’ second collection and is steeped in themes of love and loss. Holding the pigeon as a totem for the dichotomy of down-to-earth physicality and the astonishing ability to take flight.
Secular Games is Alex Wylie’s debut collection. It is a poetic testament for our era. Reaching across time and space, in exacting, sensuous, restless language, these poems range from ninth-century Japan, to Renaissance Italy to intergalactic travel to the surface of Venus.
