“Iain Britton’s poetical writing entangles the personal human condition with natural process and cultural artifice. Human problems, frequently a question of reconciling self and other, are read in terms of place, landscape, image, the clutter and scenery of civilisation including gods and arts, to form a kind of totalising theatre of perception which can be close to emblematic. Actual and figurative remain perfectly distinguishable, but interact with each other in every detail, in an open theatre where acts are free to display their full nature and origins, the vast width of the inner life.” Peter Riley
Iain will be reading poems from his latest collection THE INTAGLIO POEMS at TIME OUT BOOKSTORE in Mt Eden, which will also involve six of the very finest poets in and around Auckland. The reading will start at 7pm on Friday 11 August. Phantom Billstickers will generously be helping to promote the reading by placing posters around the city.
