Divine Comedy: Tom Pickard and Philip Terry at the LRB Bookshop

August 12, 2014 @ 8:00 pm

In an exciting poetry double bill, Tom Pickard and Philip Terry will be reading from their latest works. Tom Pickard’s Hoyoot: Collected Poems and Songs was released this year from Carcanet and bears witness to a fifty-year career of lyric, narrative and satiric verse, always politically engaged and permanently open to influences from popular culture and global poetic traditions – Allen Ginsberg called him ‘one of the most live and true poetic voices in Great Britain’. Philip Terry’s new collection Dante’s Inferno (also from Carcanet) relocates the narrative of the Inferno to the campus of Essex University, where Terry (guided by Ted Berrigan, in place of Virgil) is shown the torments of vice chancellors, education ministers and Shane MacGowan. Both poets are famously engaging readers; we look forward to what promises to be a memorable evening.
