More About the Author

Pascale Petit's latest book Fauverie is shortlisted for the T S Eliot Prize. A portfolio of poems from it won the 2013 Manchester Poetry Prize. T S Eliot shortlisted What the Water Gave Me: Poems after Frida Kahlo (Seren, 2010), was also shortlisted for Wales Book of the Year. "Pascale's poems are as fresh as paint, and make you look all over again at Frida and her brilliant and tragic life." - Jackie Kay The Observer, Book of the Year. "This arresting collection... exploring the way trauma hurts an artist into creation, celebrates the rebarbative energy with which Kahlo redeemed pain and transformed it into paint" - Ruth Padel, The Guardian. "Pascale Petit creates forms and strategies that go beyond common knowledge of what a poem can or should do; her poetry never behaves itself or betrays itself; and contemporary British poetry is all the livelier for it." David Morley

Petit has published six poetry collections including four shortlisted for the T S Eliot Prize and three which were books of the year in The Times Literary Supplement, The Independent and Observer. She trained as an artist at the Royal College of Art and was a visual artist for the first part of her life. In 2004 the Poetry Book Society selected her as one of the Next Generation Poets. She is widely travelled, including in the Venezuelan Amazon, China and Nepal, and leads popular poetry courses at Tate Modern and for The Poetry School.
