Robert Sheppard: Berlin Bursts

  • Sun, 16 Oct 2011
  • 5.30 PM - 6.30 PM
  • Tickets: Free, ticket required

Part of the radical literary avant-garde sometimes called ‘linguistically innovative’, Sheppard combines subtle effects of language and tone with a variety of performance styles from the direct and quick-fire to the musical.

His most recent books are Warrant Error, a verbal intervention into the War on Terror and Berlin Bursts, which contains poems that explore one of his persistent themes of human unfinish. Anthologised in the OUP Anthology of Twentieth Century British and Irish Poetry, Sheppard is also Professor of Poetry and Poetics at Edge Hill University.

Part of this year's Chapter & Verse Literature Festival. For the full schedule click here or download the brochure
