Campaign in Poetry
The Emma Press Anthology of Political Poems
Rachel Piercey, Emma Wright, Emma Wright
Campaign in Poetry is a powerful collection of poems about political and social issues in the UK. The poems have been written by contemporary poets in the months leading up to the UK General Election, reflecting current concerns and developing events in this country as well as more global trends. Some of the sharpest minds writing today offer up shrewd, provocative thoughts on nationalism, climate change, immigration, political apathy amongst voters, arts funding and feminism in the digital age. This anthology is a statement against disaffection, providing an alternative perspective on the political landscape of the UK.
