an evening with Sean Borodale introducing his book

18th February 2016


Sean Borodale, one of 2014’s Next Generation Poets, will be reading from his second collection, Human Work – A Poet’s Cookbook, poems about the rites and rituals of cooking.

Sean Borodale works as a poet and artist. His debut collection Bee Journal was shortlisted for the Aldeburgh First Collection Prize, the TS Eliot Prize and the Costa Poetry Award in 2013. Mighty Beast, his documentary poem for Radio 3 about the Taunton Livestock Market won the Radio Academy Gold Award in 2014 for Best Feature or Documentary. His topographical poem Notes for an Atlas was performed in 2007 at the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall, directed by Mark Rylance, as part of the first London Festival of Literature. His collection Bee Journal will be issued this year as a Vintage Classic.

‘Sean Borodale is without doubt the most exciting new poet I have read since Alice Oswald. His Bee Journal raises the bar for us all and announces a thrilling new voice in British poetry’ Carol Ann Duffy
