Review of ‘Ten: Poets of the New Generation’
“If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off,” said the American poet Emily Dickinson, “I know that is poetry.”…the event that gave me the full Dickinson (or something like that)… was a reading by Ten: Poets of the New Generation… my God, they are the real McCoy.
Will Harris, Ian Humphreys, Yomi Sode and Raymond Antrobus were among the poets whose work brought tears to my eyes. I have been to an awful lot of poetry readings in my life. Trust me, most don’t make me cry.
