Faber Poets

Sun 1 Jan 2012

Shapcott was recently awarded the Queen’s Gold Medal for Poetry. Her latest collection Of Mutability is a playful and arresting series of poems that explore mortality and the nature of change. Paterson’s Forward Prize-winning Rain straddles the gap between presence and absence, reality and illusion. Greenlaw’s The Casual Perfect encompasses science, travel, vision and perception in ‘an exploration of the point at which we start to make sense of things’. And Nagra’s Tippoo Sultan’s Incredible White-Man-Eating Tiger Toy-Machine! redefines the British-Indian experience in a thrilling mix of provocative wit and linguistic verve. Hosted by Sarah Crown, Guardian.
