Description

Michael Rosen's Selected Poems is a wonderfully moving sequence of prose poems extracted from his acclaimed autobiographical triptych, Carrying the Elephant, This is Not My Nose and In the Colonie. In a series of artful, deceptively simple poems, Rosen covers a vast terrain, collating vivid and fragmentary memories from his left-wing Jewish upbringing, his teenage holiday at a socialist summer camp in France, his London childhood and the death of his eighteen-year-old son from meningitis. He takes in, along the way, marriage, divorce, births and the undiagnosed illness (an underactive thyroid) from which Rosen suffered for ten years.

Author Biography

Michael Rosen was brought up in London, and studied English at Oxford. After a spell as a trainee at the BBC, he has worked as a freelance broadcaster and writer. He is known mostly as a children's poet, but his recent adult volumes, Carrying the Elephant, about the death of his son, This is Not My Nose and In the Colonie, are highly acclaimed. He lives in Dalston, north London, with his wife and daughter.
