The Perseverance by Raymond Antrobus

  • The REP Broad St, Birmingham B1 2EP (map)

The Perseverance is the remarkable debut book by British-Jamaican poet Raymond Antrobus.

Ranging across history and continents, these poems operate in the spaces in between; their haunting lyrics creating new, hybrid territories. The Perseverance is a book of loss, contested language and praise, where elegies for the poet's father sit alongside meditations on the d/Deaf experience.

'His monologues are stunning studies of voice and substance, and his lyric poems are graceful and finely crafted.' Kwame Dawes
