Here’s what the reviewers had to say – ‘The Kingdom’ has enhanced my admiration for this rapidly maturing poet. Still a formidable champion of social and political issues, his approach is never didactic and he writes with a supreme mastery of language and of form and structure”. Mick Yates: Poet Winner of the Geoff Stevens Poetry Prize.
Matt Duggan’s ‘Kingdom’ is one of profound change. The ‘Liars, Lobbyists, and Looters’ rule. Democracy has become ‘ a flammable effigy’ Mother Earth has been broken. Pan ‘subjugated’ and the heartbeat of a city is ‘fading’. Duggan challenges his readers to wake up and take note by setting ‘the guns off inside’ our heads. Duggan is one of the most distinctive and compelling voices in contemporary poetry. Kingdom will undoubtedly add to his growing reputation. – Nigel Kent Poet and Author of ‘Saudade’ Hedgehog Poetry Press
