Anthony Joseph: Measure of a Man

‘We saw him maybe twice a year, once at Christmas / And while we waited, the myth of him grew from such a powerful absence…’ Anthony Joseph’s poetry collection Sonnets for Albert, memorialises an all-too-often absent father. A series of ‘calypso sonnets’ speak in Caribbean rhythms of a proud and complex man. We welcome the award-winning Trinidad-born poet, novelist and musician to Edinburgh to share his first poetry collection since 2013.
