Rhythm and Poetry

by Karl Nova

Ref: 2825

The throb, clamour and spirit of rap and hip hop are captured in this collection of, in his words, "lyrical pictures." Inspired first by rap and then by Shakespeare, Angelou and Wordsworth, this is Nova's first book and a dazzler at that! Each poem is accompanied by a personal explanatory note from Nova on its inspiration. Nova does a great deal of direct work with young people and you can really feel his audience's influence in his work. Winner of the 2018 CLPE Poetry Award (Centre for Literacy in Primary Education).
