The Emma Press Anthology of Age
Published by The Emma Press
An unsentimental collection which captures the difficult combination of the pain and the pleasures of old age, with poems from 34 poets including Alison Brackenbury, Doireann Ní Ghríofa, Julia Bird, Harry Man, Hugh Dunkerley and Anja Konig.
We’re all ageing. All of us, all of the time. As a society we’re getting even older, but we seldom seem to stop and think about the huge mental and physical changes that happen to us as we get old, or what it’s like to live as an old person. The Emma Press Anthology of Age contains poems that challenge, celebrate and give age a voice, showing how fun it can be to be old and how hard it can be; what it’s like when some things just don’t work anymore – and when some are better than ever.
