Adventures in Form : A Compendium of Poetic Forms, Rules & Constraints Paperback

Edited by Tom Chivers


A Poetry Book Society Special Commendation The Independent 50 Best Summer Reads Welcome to a strange new world in which a poem can be written using only one vowel, processed through computer code, collaged from film trailers, compiled from Facebook status updates, hidden inside a Sudoku puzzle, and even painted on sheep to demonstrate Quantum Theory. Discover a multitude of new and unusual poetic forms - from tweet to time-splice, and from skinny villanelle to breakbeat sonnet - in this inspiring and inventive anthology. Adventures in Form features over ninety poems by forty-six contributors including Patience Agbabi, Christian Bok, Joe Dunthorne, Inua Ellams, Roddy Lumsden, Ian McMillan, Paul Muldoon, Ruth Padel and Hannah Silva.

Edited and introduced by Tom Chivers.
