The post-Romantic fantasy of the dissolute drunken poet – exemplified by means of Thomas and made iconic by means of his dying in big apple – has fatally skewed a dead ringer for poets in our tradition. Novelists could be good, savvy, politically adept and on top of things, yet poets will be melancholic, doomed and self-destructive. is that this only a delusion, or is there a few crucial fact at the back of it: that fab poems merely come whilst a poet's lifestyles is driven correct to an emotional knife-edge of acceptability, protection, safety? what's the expense of poetry?
In this publication, modern poets adopt a sequence of trips – throughout Britain, the USA and Europe – to the dying areas of poets of the prior, partly as pilgrims, honouring inspirational writers, but in addition as investigators, interrogating the parable. the result's a e-book that's, in flip, enlightening and provocative, eye-wateringly humorous and powerfully moving.
