minnmouth

a new book of poems by Alec Finlay
minnmouth bodes the inshot and ootshot tide: sea rise, coastal inundation, and the promise of marine renewables. The poems are anchored by place-names; they are composed in and impelled by the regional languages of the East Coast of the British Isles, from the Out Stack of Unst to Great Yarmouth.

Read Alec’s blog entry here.

The book is the companion to tidesongs, composed by Hanna Tuulikki with Lucy Duncombe, from phrases and elements in the poems, available from Bandcamp here.

This work is being exhibited at ‘Somewhere Becoming Sea’, a Film and Video Umbrella curated exhibition in Hull, April-June 2017; and at ‘FLOERS’, a joint exhibition by Alec Finlay and Hannah Imlach at North Light Arts, Dunbar, June 2017.

Published by morning star, FVU & North Light Arts, 2017
Available now for £5 (until 17 June 2017, £7.50 thereafter) + p&p
