The Limerick Broadsheet – ‘April is the Cruellest Month’
This broadsheet takes TS Eliot’s The Wasteland as its inspiration. Published 100 years ago, Eliot’s ultimately hopeful poem, acknowledges head-on, the sheer brutality of the modern world. The Wasteland serves to reminds us that poetry offers us a space to dare; to be creative; to be imaginative; to question the status quo; to be critical and to be radical. While any curation is, by definition, subjective, the poems contained in this publication do all of these things. This broadsheet contains work by both long-established and newly emerging writers/artists that I admire. I thank all of the contributors for trusting me with their work. A century after Eliot’s poem, we need poetry in our lives more than ever.
