Difficult poetry and the Russian Revolution.

Some interesting reading on various blogs recently. Our client Marie Marshall had a little to say about difficult poetry, after which her colleague Daniel Paul Marshall – I’m assured that they’re not related – took the subject a little further. Any of you who are interested in poetics might find the discussion sets you thinking.

sosoAlso Marie recently blogged her short story set a few years before the Russian Revolution, the centenary of which is this year. Who is the mysterious ‘Soso’? Would we recognise in him one of the famous persons of the twentieth century?

By the way, if you have not read Marie’s poetry collection, I am not a fish, I am told that copies are still available from Oversteps Books. The collection was nominated for the 2013 T.S. Eliot Prize, which gives you some idea of how good it is!
