Product description
This new anthology of Quaker poets - the first for over a hundred years - features distinguished poets such as UA Fanthorpe, Gerard Benson, Philip Gross, Ann Drysdale, Gillian Allnutt, Basil Bunting and many others, from well-known names to exciting newcomers. A Speaking Silence reveals the strong affinity between poetry and Quakerism. Yet this is not a book of sacred verse but a wide-ranging exploration of the real world, seen through a distinctively Quaker poetic lens. These are, above all, good poems, and thoroughly contemporary in their variety of topics, voices, approaches and styles, the formal as well as the more expeimental. These are poems that disturb silence significantly, as WS Graham said all good poetry should. They are poems to move you, delight you - and make you think.
