Brand New Ancients

My lovely Aunty Helen has a wonderful eye for poetry. She gave me my first ever collection of Carol Ann Duffy poems, The World's Wife, of which I still class Queen Herod as one of my favourite poems of all time, classical or modern.

Just picked up a Christmas parcel the other day and Helen sent me a copy of Brand New Ancients by Kate Tempest.

Totally blown away. Fantastic piece of work. It's meant to be read aloud, but I was swept away by the ink. Find her on Twitter (@katetempest) and online, and go buy a copy.
