Poems of travel
Sarah Jackson, Tim Youngs, Emma Wright
Travelling from one place to another is never as simple as getting from A to B. Whether you’re sailing in a stately cruise liner or running for a grimy commuter train, your mode of transport affects the way you look at the things around you. Travel can even make us question who we are at home: will we be the same person at the other end of the journey? The poems in this anthology look at the ways in which travelling can change us, whether we enjoy or endure it. They take in not only day-trippers and business travellers, but characters who are forced to voyage against their will, as well as those with no choice but to stay put. Whatever your destination, this book is a companion for the journey, exploring the nuances of the strange state of being in transit.
