The Migraine Hotel, Paperback

The Migraine Hotel Paperback


A combination of verse and prose poetry, 'The Migraine Hotel' is Luke Kennard's third collection and very much a sequel to 'The Harbour Beyond the Movie'.

The voices continue to explore the territory opened up by Harbour, at once satiric, stricken, sincere and bitingly sarcastic, combined with a kaleidoscopic range of ways of engaging with a poem as a reader.

The prose poems are prose poems in the tradition of Baudelaire, which is to say they read more like grouchy comic monologues with unreliable narrators than prose-verse characterised by excessive lyricism.
