Event: Launch of 'The Dialect of the Tribe' at Lauderdale House, Thursday 10th November 2011
Join us for readings from our Autumn issue at Lauderdale House. MPT 3/16 'The Dialect of the Tribe' will celebrate the poetry of minority languages and explore the struggle for what John Clare called ‘self-identity’, a chief factor in which is bound to be language, one’s own peculiar tongue and the dialect of the tribe.
Readers will be MPT's Editors David and Helen Constantine, Philip Gross, Christopher Pilling, Saradha Soobrayen and Karen McCarthy Woolf.
Philip Gross’s The Water Table received the T.S. Eliot Prize and his new collection Deep Field will be published by Bloodaxe in November. John Lucas said Christopher Pilling’s Les Amours Jaunes was, ‘a work which nobody who cares about poetry can afford to be without.’ Poetry Editor of Chroma, Saradha Soobrayen received the 2004 Eric Gregory Award and her work has featured in, among others, Wasafari and Poetry Review. Born to English and Jamaican parents, Karen McCarthy Woolf’s poetry has featured in distinguished journals, anthologies and on the London Underground.
