AN EMPHASIS ON SONNETS

In Small Measure
Christopher Whitby

Judged as “inventive, well-made and witty” by Don Paterson and as “deceptively simple little word sculptures” by New Zealand editor Juliet Oliver, many of Whitby’s poems present characters, situations and dilemmas together with hinted back stories. They speak from different hearts: some troubled, some angry, some cruel. Most lend themselves to performance on stage and as drama exercises in addition to private reading. They are portable. They echo.

“I wasted a lot of time looking for ‘my voice’ as a poet, until I realised that other people’s voices were what were asking to be heard. Before it was placed on an esoteric pedestal, poetry – even short non-narrative poetry – was an oral tradition, reinterpreted with each delivery. I’d like to put some of that potential back into circulation.” Christopher Whitby
