Our Small Universe: the languages of the UK in Modern Poetry in Translation

Here's a timely exploration by this much respected magazine into the many languages of the United Kingdom - from Romani to Welsh; Shetlandic to BSL; Turkish to Ulster Scots – and features Owen Sheers, Zoe Brigley, Liz Berry, MacGillivray, David Morley, Al-Saddiq Al-Raddi andMatthew Hollis. Cyril Jones and Philip Gross collaborate using the Welsh ‘englyn’ form, and Sophie Herxheimer writes in her Grandmother’s ‘Inklisch’.
