at the London Review Bookshop on 22 November at 7pm (for tickets see here)
Glyn Maxwell offers us a guide to reading poetry in seven chapters. Described by Katy Evans-Bush in Poetry Review ‘as highly charged as a stick of poetry dynamite’, On Poetry sold out its first printing in less than a week. Adam Newey wrote in the Guardian: ‘This is the best book about poetry I’ve ever read; certainly the only one that’s made me laugh out loud. Maxwell’s students are lucky to have him’.
