Segue October 28: A Celebration of the Poems of Mark Hyatt, with Sam Ladkin, Luke Roberts, and others

October 28, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Mark Hyatt (1940-1972) lived at the center and the fringes of the bohemian underground in 1960s Britain. In the half-century since his death, his work has been known almost exclusively by word of mouth. Drawing on a full range of archival sources, So Much For Life, edited by Sam Ladkin and Luke Roberts, is the first comprehensive edition of his poems.

Sam Ladkin is a Senior Lecturer in Creative and Critical Writing at the University of Sussex, where he directs the New York School Seminars. He co-directs the poetry press Sancho Panza.

Luke Roberts is the author of several chapbooks including Landscaping Under Duress. He is also the editor of Desire Lines: Unselected Poems, 1966-2000 by Barry MacSweeney. He lives and works in London.

Guest readers include Lina Bergamini, Emily Bark Brown, Caelan Ernest, Tal Mancini, Stephen Motika, Sahar, Paloma Saint-Denis Lopez, Dante Silva, Alma Valdez-Garcia, Claire Zhang
