Rise Like Lions: Poetry for the Many

by Compiled by Ben Okri - £9.99  Hodder & Stoughton (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781473676169 | ISBN 10: 1473676169

An anthology of inspiring political poetry compiled by award-winning poet and novelist Ben Okri.
 
In Rise Like Lions, Booker Prize winning writer Ben Okri has compiled a collection of poems that celebrate the many voices of politics, from polemics and rallying cries to lyrics and meditations. Many of these poems have resonated with readers over lifetimes and through generations, from William Blake to Marvin Gaye.
 
In exploring the impact political poems have on ideas, vision, protest, change and truth, Okri demonstrates how the need for this strand of poetry is as great as it has ever been, and its inspiration just as powerful.
