The poems range from medieval tapestries to contemporary tragedies, encompassing the cruelty and pity exhibited in every age. Tom Pow was born in Edinburgh in 1950. He has published many poetry pamphlets and collections, including In the Becoming: New and Selected Poems (Polygon, 2009). His most recent collection is Naranjas (Galileo Publishing, 2021).

Copies of Svetlana’s Dance will be available on the night, If you are unable to make it, you can order the poems from the Mariscat Press or email hamish.whyte@btinternet.com.
