England : Poems from a School, Paperback / softback Book

England : Poems from a School Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

'Not just good for school children, but great by any standard' - Phillip PullmanOxford Spires Academy is a small comprehensive school with 30 languages - and one special focus: poetry.

In the last five years, its students have won every prize going.

They have been celebrated in the Guardian ('The Very Quiet Foreign Girls Poetry Group'), and the subject of a BBC Radio 3 documentary. In this unique anthology, their mentor and teacher prize-winning poet Kate Clanchy brings their poems together, and allowing readers to see why their work has caused such a stir.

By turns raw and direct, funny and powerful, lyrical and heartbreaking, they document the pain of migration and the exhilaration of building a new land, an England of a thousand voices.

In England: Poems from a School, you will find poetry is easy to read and hard to forget, as fresh, bright and present as the young migrants who produced it.
