Blackbird, Bye Bye, Paperback / softback Book

Blackbird, Bye Bye Paperback / softback

Description

Moniza Alvi's new book is unified by birds. Her creations 'Motherbird' and 'Fatherbird' are inspired by her parents, the idea of her father's immigration, and also by the loss of her Pakistani father.

Among the many bird-related poems are versions of the French poets Jules Supervielle and Saint-John Perse, and poems 'after' the paintings of the Spanish-Mexican surrealist artist Remedios Varo. Blackbird, Bye Bye is Moniza Alvi's first new poetry book since her T.S.

Eliot Prize-shortlisted collection At the Time of Partition, published in 2013.
