“The English Civil War part 2”.   £7.95  Peterloo Poets

This was the very last collection accepted for publication by Harry Chambers’ Peterloo Poets press. It includes four longer poems.  The title poem questions the continuing value of Monarchy by modernising the story of the English Civil War.  And Now for my Latest Trick is a monologue featuring Harry Houdini’s death and his famous scorn for  “spiritualism”.  The Gap is a reminiscence of the East Coast Floods of 1953.  Postcards from Auschwitz sequences a collage of voices from the death camp.  There is also a section, Looking Myself Up, of shorter poems.
