Bluebeard's Wives Anthology: TONIGHT in Birmingham!

Bluebeard's Wives: A New Poetry Anthology

Launching in various venues across the Midlands, the legend of Bluebeard is rewritten here by his many “wives” — 21 women from the Midlands. The specially commissioned poems emerged after Julie Boden, poet in residence at the Symphony Hall Birmingham, invited the women for a tour of the building followed by an airing of Bartók’s Duke Bluebeard’s Castle. Drawing on theatre and music, this collection offers another look at the familiar myth.

Poets featured in the anthology and at the readings include Roz Goddard, Helen Yendall, Christine Coleman, Jane Holland, Julie Boden, Zoe Brigley and Jo Bell.

Co-ordinated by Apples & Snakes in association with Heaventree Press. The anthology editors are Julie Boden and Zoe Brigley.
