Michael Symmons Roberts

Friday 20th Oct 2017, 6:30pm
Central Library

In his eagerly anticipated seventh collection, Michael Symmons Roberts shows us a place at once familiar and strange. Mancunia is located where real crosses unreal, a Manchester of the mind: occupied, abandoned, liberated and rebuilt. In these finely wrought, capacious poems, we encounter wayward mariners in bars, meet invisible bureaucrats, and hear history shouting through the wall. Michael has published six collections of poetry and been awarded the Forward Prize, the Costa Poetry Award and the Whitbread Poetry Prize. He is also an acclaimed librettist, broadcaster and dramatist, has published two novels, and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. This event is in partnership with Manchester Metropolitan University.  Introduced by Martin Kratz.
