On April 18, Armitage is joined on stage by fellow poets Mona
Arshi and Zaffar Kunial for the Royal Society of Literature’s T.S. Eliot
Memorial Reading. Arshi’s debut
collection Small Hands won her the 2015 Forward Prize, its precise, understated
verse announcing the arrival of a major new talent. Kunial’s first collection
was released in 2014 as part of the Faber New Poets series, exploring, among
much else, the ways in which language informs our sense of self.
The reading is to be held at the Old Theatre at the
London School of Economics, and introduced by the poet and former editor of Poetry Review Fiona Sampson. What better
way to spend a Monday evening than listening to some of the day’s finest and
most promising literary voices?
