ISBN: 9780571333745 Category: Tags: ,


Dalit Nagra possesses one of the most distinctive voices in British poetry. British Museum is his third collection, and follows his electrifying version of the epic Ramayana. Here, his characteristic wit and ebullience remain to the fore, but his political edge has been further honed in a series of meditations and reflections upon our heritage, our legacy, and the institutions that define them: the BBC, Hadrian’s Wall, our schools and universities, and the British Museum of the title poem. Compassionate, charismatic, charged, Daljit Nagra has written a text that asks profound questions of our ethics and responsibilities at a time of great challenge to our sense of national identity.
