Spoken Ink Poetry: Rough Music | [Fiona Sampson]

Spoken Ink Poetry: Rough Music

Rough Music is the old English name for a custom of public scapegoating. This is a collection full of disturbing musical echoes, in which brilliant renewals of carol, charm, folksong, and ballad explore themes of violence, loss, and belonging. Fiona Sampson's characteristic lyric intensity deftly fuses metaphysics and politics with the vernacular of daily life.
