Agenda - Exiles
Published by Agenda Magazine
The Winter 2012 issue of Agenda poetry magazine (vol. 47, no. 1).
Exiles is made up of a haunting compilation of poems and translations/versions, from many parts of the world, on the theme of exile.
There are poems by the likes of Tim Liardet, Peter Dale, Sheenagh Pugh, Greg Delanty, Martyn Crucefix and Nausheen Eusuf, and translations by Ruth Christie, Sasha Dugdale, Richard McKane, Timothy Adès, Stephen Watts and Will Stone.
The issue also includes William Bedford interviewing Bernard O’Donoghue, Francis O’Gorman discussing the exile theme in Joyce’s Pomes Penyeach, and Belinda Cooke writing on Russian Women poets.
“Agenda, as the title insists, does several things that need to be done if literary culture is to stay in good shape.”
