Not Only The Dark – 160 Poems About Survival

by flambardblog

Our poet Rebecca Goss has been published in WordAid’s latest anthology ‘Not Only The Dark – 160 Poems About Survival.’ The Anthology is in aid of ShelterBox who are an international disaster relief charity that deliver emergency shelter, warmth and dignity to people affected by disaster worldwide.

We published Rebecca’s first collection ‘The Anatomy of Structures’ in July 2010.

The poems are physical and violent but also sexy … above all they are highly original and tender, exposing physical longing but also anxiety.’
Paul Stephenson, 25 Years in the North magazine no.46 (Winter 2010)

‘Her style – spare, unshowy and thoroughly honed – is consistent throughout. Goss uses it to carry a series of tense, slightly mysterious family narratives that together tell a wider story. Poems such as Knowledge and Fold pack an awful lot of punch into their small frames.’
Matt Merritt, Magma 48
