The Bluecoat: Paul Farley & Michael Symmons Roberts: Edgelands

6 February


The book Edgelands explores marginal, in between spaces – themes echoed though visual art in the Soft Estate exhibition, with its focus on ‘non-places’. Described as ‘a masterpiece of its kind … A beautifully conceived work of exploration by two emissaries to the wilderness who do the wasteland proud’ (John Burnside, The Times), the book by these two award-winning North West poets is in a ‘nature writing’ tradition but also critiques it. Here, the authors read from Edgelands, talk about how it took shape through collaboration and discuss art in the margins.
