Cambridge Literary Review 10: Vahni Capildeo, Drew Milne, Luke Roberts and Eley WilliamsTuesday 22 August 2017, 6 p.m. · 58 minutes
Four of the most interesting poets working today read at the bookshop, to mark the publication of Cambridge Literary Review 10: Vahni Capildeo, Drew Milne, Luke Roberts and Eley Williams.
Vahni Capildeo's Measures of Expatriation, which won the 2016 Forward Prize for Best Collection, explores her relationship with the dual homelands of her native Trinidad and her adopted Britain.
Drew Milne, Judith E Wilson Lecturer in Drama and Poetry at Cambridge University, is highly regarded as both a critic of poetry and as a poet in his own right. His In Darkest Capital: Collected Poems is forthcoming from Carcanet.
Luke Roberts is Lecturer in Modern Poetry at Kings College, London, and his long poem To My Contemporaries recently published in Chicago Review, combines the political and the pastoral in ways that are as challenging as they are beguiling.
Eley Williams's collection of short fiction Attrib. and other stories was published to huge acclaim by Influx Press earlier this year, and a volume of her poetry, Frit is published by Sad Press.
