Home on the Move: Two poems go on a journey

  • Sale
  • £8.99

Title will be released 1 July, 2019

Multilingual anthology of poetry and translation produced for the touring project ‘Talking Transformations: Home on the Move’.

Edited by Ricarda Vidal and Manuela Perteghella

Features TS Eliot Prize shortlisted poet Deryn Rees-Jones. 

This collection combines filmmakers, translators, artists and poets from Romania, Poland, France, Spain and the UK.

Home on the Move explores notions of ‘home’ that are challenged and reshaped by unprecedented migration. The anthology interrogates ideas of home, belonging and language from poetic perspectives. The creative responses are the results of a journey undertaken by two poems about ‘home’: poet Deryn Rees-Jones’ poem ‘HOME’ who travelled from the UK via France to Spain and back and Polish poet Rafał Gawin’s poem: ‘DOM. KONSTRUKCJA W PROCESIE SĄDOWYM’ (‘Home. Structure on Trial’).

Gawin travelled to the UK via Romania and back to Poland and the poem reflects the inspiration of these places. During each journey, the poems were translated by a literary translator and a local film artist.
