Summary

The 'Lustra of Ezra Pound' presents an intriguing anthology that bridges the thematic and stylistic divides between Eastern and Western literary traditions. At its core, the collection explores notions of identity, fragmentation, and the quest for cultural synthesis through a tapestry of poetic forms ranging from classical Chinese poetry to modernist free verse. The anthology stands as a testament to the complexity and diversity of early 20th-century poetics, with Pound's translations of Bai Li's work highlighting the blend and contrast of these literary landscapes. This juxtaposition not only enriches the reader's experience but also underscores the anthology's significance in the broader context of cross-cultural literary dialogues. The contributions of Ezra Pound, a pivotal figure in the modernist movement, and Bai Li, an eminent poet of the Tang Dynasty, encapsulate a period marked by robust explorations into the expressive potentials of language and form. The collection aligns with historical and cultural movements that championed literary innovation and intercultural exchange, drawing from Pound's imagist principles and Bai Li's lyrical introspection. Through their collective efforts, the anthology offers a rich mosaic of perspectives that challenge and redefine traditional boundaries of poetic expression. 'Lustra of Ezra Pound' is a compelling invitation to readers seeking to immerse themselves in a confluence of poetic voices that span time and geography. This anthology is not only a scholarly exploration but also a celebration of the enduring power of poetry to foster understanding and connection across diverse cultural landscapes. Readers will find in this collection an invaluable resource for examining the threads that weave together Eastern and Western literary traditions, and an inspiration for future dialogues in the evolving tapestry of global literature.

    Chris Mansell is a keen observer of human nature, as adept in presenting the pre-language utterings of a toddler as a memorial tribute to a poet who died young. In spite of the trials we face, she never loses her sense of irony and humour. Her extended work “good poetry” treats the power politics of writing with a delightful honesty.

    When banks and sandwich shops have more pride than we do, where can we go to be with our tribe?
    It's 2022. There's a rainbow flag in every high-street window, and no lesbian bar. Enter The Ministry of Lesbian Affairs: a lesbian choir on a mission to unite a disparate and dwindling community. Led by a world-weary conductor, the choir flirt, gossip and attempt to sing their way onto the main stage at Pride.
    But harmony is more easily dreamt than realised in this heart-warming musical comedy about love, queerness and belonging. Iman Qureshi's play The Ministry of Lesbian Affairs premiered at Soho Theatre, London, in 2022, as a co-production between Soho and Damsel Productions.

    A heartbreaking tale of orphans, angels, murder and music - dramatised from the Whitbread Award-winning novel set in 18th-century England.
    Winner of the Time Out Live Award for Best Play
    In 18th-century Gloucestershire, the evil Otis Gardner preys on unmarried mothers, promising to take their babies (and their money) to Thomas Coram's hospital for foundling children. Instead, he buries the babies and pockets the loot.
    But Otis's downfall is set in train when his half-witted son Meshak falls in love with a young girl, Melissa, and rescues the unwanted son she has had with a disgraced aristocrat. The child is brought up in Coram's hospital, and proves to have inherited the startling musical gifts of his father - gifts that ultimately bring about his father's redemption and a heartbreaking family reunion.

    Self-Portrait with a Swarm of Bees combines the poet's unerring instinct for the surprising perspective on commonplace objects or events with a mischievous delight in the detail of the absurd. Wagner is a vigilant, yet playful, chronicler of the quotidian, his meticulous handling of image and sound forging a worldly, almost luminous palpability.
