New in stock at Charlie Byrne’s is Dark Mountain Issue 10; Uncivilised Poetics edited by Em Strang, Nick Hunt, Cate Chapman and Charlotte Du Cann. We are living through an age of turmoil: climate change, extinction, failed economics, stagnant politics. In such testing times, what’s the point of poetry?
Uncivilised Poetics brings together a unique gathering of writers and artists to tackle this question. With poems, essays, visual art and an accompanying audio CD, their voices come together to imagine what it means to be human today. Contributors include Mark Rylance, Sheryl St. Germain, John Kinsella, Robert Bringhurst, Doireann Ní Ghríofa, Robin Robertson, Jan Zwicky and Robert Montgomery.
Dark Mountain Issue 1o; Uncivilised Poetics is available in store for €21. We have also received more copies of The Dark Mountain Project for €6. For more information, or to reserve a copy of either, simply contact us.
