Publisher's Summary

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.

Fiona Sampson has published 15 books, including works of poetry, volumes on the philosophy of language and on the writing process. Her poetry has been published and broadcast in more than 30 languages.

Rough Music was shortlisted for both the T.S. Eliot Prize and the Forward Prize 2010 for best collection.

The print edition of Rough Music is published by Carcanet Press
