Peter Hughes will read at The Other Room on 10th June, 7pm, alongside Amy Cutler and Luke Allan.
I sometimes wrote in Italian, in an exploratory kind of way, just for myself, in notebooks. I didn’t try to publish it. Mainly I contented myself with reading Italian, and sometimes translating from Italian into English.

“This short book by Sarah Crewe, published by Peter Hughes’ always interesting Oystercatcher Press, poses many questions. The first is: what exactly is it? Is it a long poem, a sequence of poems or a collection of discrete pieces? Reading flick invicta, the reader is repeatedly presented with these questions and is always looking for connections, for a way of navigating the text and understanding its internal wiring. Content is constantly framed and reframed. Perhaps the most pertinent analogy is that of a Venn diagram with many circles of context, voice, syntax and style. Where these circles intersect is where the poetry happens.”
