The PTC’s first craft book, written by authors and translators from around the world, Living in Language brings together reflections on the craft and purpose of poetry, by 21 leading poets from around the world.
The spectacular lyric essays, fragments, letters and new poems all emerge in this groundbreaking new anthology, which sheds light on topics as diverse and vital as writing the body, writing in exile, writing as witness, writing as a shamanic act, grappling with traditional forms, discovering your own voice, and even translation and self-translation. This is an essential resource for anyone looking to broaden their horizons and engage with the cutting edge of poetry as it is practised, around the world, in the 21st century.
