This collection of poetry presents a compilation of original writing from Christopher Logue. Logue's vibrant career is more prominently characterized by his earlier performative, interdisciplinary, and even ventriloquized acts. He has been a great re-writer of ancient classics, a recognizable face at literary happenings, a composer and playwright for the Royal Court, and is credited as the inventor of the poster poem. But in these poems, Logue shows himself as a writer, whose voice influenced and was influenced by the post-war cultural revolution of the 1960s. His political, jazz-influenced and ultimately straightforward poems demonstrate a wholly personal lyricism and candor, and an artistry behind the poems that speaks in a voice of Logue's own.
Chosen and arranged by Christopher Reid.
