Mancunia

Author: Michael Symmons Roberts
Publisher: London : Jonathan Cape, 2017.
Edition/Format:   Print book : Poetry : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Metaphysical and lyrical, the poems in Michael Symmons Roberts' seventh collection are concerned with why and how we ascribe value, where it resides and how it survives. 'Mancunia' is - like More's Utopia - both a no-place and an attempt at the good-place. It is occupied, liberated, abandoned and rebuilt. Capacious, disturbing and shape-shifting, these are poems for our changing times.
