Theperseverance_frontcover_small About the collection:

The Perseverance by Raymond Antrobus is one of the year’s most highly anticipated debuts. His poems range across history and continents, operating in the spaces in between and creating new, hybrid territories. Kaveh Akbar says, ‘it’s magic, the way this poet is able to bring together so much—deafness, race, masculinity, a mother’s dementia, a father’s demise—with such dexterity.’ Born in Hackney to an English mother and Jamaican father, Raymond Antrobus has received fellowships from Cave Canem, Complete Works and Jerwood Compton Poetry. He has had multiple residencies in deaf and hearing schools around London, as well as Pupil Referral Units. In 2018 he was awarded the Geoffrey Dearmer Award by the Poetry Society (judged by Ocean Vuong). Malika Booker says, ‘These are courageous autobiographical poems of praise, difficulties, testimony and love.’
