A New Pamphlet by Nicholas Murray

 

Our last pamphlet of 2020, which has been our 15th anniversary year, is A Quartet in Winter by Nicholas Murray published on 1st December.

In the fourth of a series of formal verse satires that began in 2011 with Get Real! and which included Trench Feet (2014) and A Dog’s Brexit (Melos, 2017) Nicholas Murray evokes the Welsh Marches in early winter, when “frost lays its dust-sheet on the Radnor Hills”, contemplating, in rustic confinement in a pandemic, a world of “smirking kleptocrats on giant screens”, and the fate of the Earth “we treat so roughly”.

Nicholas Murray is a poet and literary biographer living in Powys. His most recent full-length poetry collection, The Yellow Wheelbarrow, was published in 2019 by the Melos Press. 

In The Manchester Review Ian Pople praised: “...the quiet rhythmic pulse with underpins all Murray’s poems. That assured rhythmic control is often allied with a closely observational sense in Murray’s writing”.


You can order the new pamphlet here (see side panel) post free at £5.
