Description

New edition of a ground-breaking poetry anthology (Inside Out) in which 21 poets each discuss one of their poems and how they came to write it.

A new edition of a ground-breaking poetry anthology (previously Inside Out) in which 21 poets each discuss one of their poems and how they came to write it. They are on a wide range of subjects -colonialism, cows in the beach, telling lies, aquariums – and there’s also nonsense verse, a poem about alligator pie, and one about the wonderful man from the Land of Fandango. The poets, who are from across the world, include John Agard, Carol Ann Duffy, Margaret Mahy, Roger McGough, Jack Prelutsky and Michael Rosen, and they talk surprisingly honestly about what comes into their heads when they write. Aloud in My Head is a fascinating, sometimes funny, book about the act of creation itself. It’s for everyone who loves poetry and wants to inspire others to love it too.
