Edited by Kwame Dawes, Kadija Sesay

Part of the Inscribe series


Inspired by the word red, thiscollection of poems written by black British writersincluding both established authors and new, exciting poetsexplores the subjects and ideas stirred by a single trigger, from the word'susual associations with blood, violence, passion, and anger, as well as with sensuality and sexuality, to more surprising interpretations such as the link to a particular mood, the quality of light in the sky, the color of skin, and the sound of a song.

This remarkable compilation succeeds in generating poems that find an intriguing resonance with each other while also revealing images and themes unique to the individual poets."
