It’s World Poetry Day and what better way to celebrate than with a cover reveal for our second publication.
…an ache in each welcoming kiss by Maria Isakova Bennett features a selection of poems predominantly written during visits to the Walker and Lady Lever galleries on Merseyside. During this period, Opalka was written for Tate Liverpool as part of An Imagined Museum.
Themes linked to absence and ideas around elegy developed as the sequence progressed and whilst the poems complement the works cited, the poetry reflects universal themes of the day.
…an ache in each welcoming kiss will be published on 3 May 2019 – look out for more news and how you can pre-order to be the first to receive this stunning collection.
The cover features the painting, Hope (1886) by George Watts (© Tate) which inspired the poem, Broken Lyre. Design work by Anita Kelly.
