MSt alumna Susie Campbell’s poetry pamphlet Tenter has been published by Guillemot Press.
From the announcement:
“Tenter is named after the tenter-frames on which cloth is stretched (using tenter-hooks). The poems weave around the making of the Bayeux tapestry as a way into writing about past and current wars and the role of memory and language in the way we commemorate conflict. Tenter explores what the poet sees as a crisis in our current inability to respond ethically to the consequences of wars we are still involved in, whilst engaging in public and civic acts of remembrance. “
Tenter arose from the Oxford/Oxford Brookes Mellon-Sawers Post-War Commemoration project.
