A decade's worth of poems by the 176 poets who've read at Britain's best annual contemporary poetry festival. Poets from all over the UK and abroad, young and old, famous names, emerging talents, neglected and non-circuit writers - specially chosen to represent the flavour of their live reading. If contemporary poetry is a bit of a minefield and you're not sure where to walk safely - or better still enjoyably - start here!
"What a wonderful poetry family Aldeburgh has built. Shine on!" (Sharon Olds)
"A truly handsome book, a joy to have in one's hands... the experience of letting if flow into and through one's mind is quite astonishing - I mean, the variety of the thing."
"The Aldeburgh Poetry Festival: may it thrive and thrive and thrive. On this planet, in our time, there is nothing like it."
"Support the Festival: it is unique." (Roger McGough)
