Manchester Poetry Library
Resurrection of a Black Man offers contemporary poems about male family dynamics – the peace, the violence, the fault lines – using language that aims to transcend global trauma, and reach into the healing heart, creating men whose “words fall out as petals”. This collection contains the winners of the inaugural Ironbridge Prize 2022, the Gloucester Poetry Society Open Competition and the Fosseway Prize.
Jenny will be reading from this latest collection of her poetry at Manchester Poetry Library.
Jenny Mitchell is winner of the Poetry Book Awards 2021, the Bedford Prize, the Ware Prize and joint winner of the Geoff Stevens Memorial Prize 2019. Her poems have been widely published and she has been nominated twice for the Forward Prize: Best Single Poem. The best-selling debut collection, ‘Her Lost Language’, is ‘One of 44 Poetry Books for 2019’ (Poetry Wales). Her second collection, ‘Map of a Plantation’, has been chosen as a ‘Literary Find’ (Irish Independent), and both books are on the syllabus of Manchester Metropolitan University.
