Published in March 2024. Pre-order your early copy now.
In Crown of Thorns G W Colkitto presents a playful yet erudite take on sonnets and not sonnets. Layered with references that are used to hold a mirror to the self, and with an astute focus on the business of writing poetry itself, this is a deft, intelligent, witty collection. This award-winning pamphlet is delivered with the lightness of touch we’ve come to recognise from a poet who constantly extends his reach.
