On April 13th there was a free online launch of new collections from three Red Poets, all from Cymru. it is available at.....
The three books are all recent publications from Culture Matters. They are Ballad of the Black Domain by Alun Rees, Our Father Eclipse by Rebecca Lowe and Anonymous Bosch by Mike Jenkins, with photos by Dave Lewis. The books are all available for sale in the Books section of the website.
The books are all inspired by the socialist republicanism of their authors, yet are still quite different. Alun Rees focuses on history (especially of the Valleys), Rebecca Lowe deals with issues of pacifism, spirituality and the environment, while Mike Jenkins looks at his home town of Merthyr Tydfil as a microcosm of working-class struggle.
Mike Jenkins is an award-winning Welsh poet and author and unofficial poet for Cardiff City FC. His new book of political poetry, Nobody's Subject, is published in Summer 2016.
