The fourth annual Poetry Library Open Day focuses on the poetic controversies of the past century, from the abstract approach of the Imagists and the salacious underground poems of WH Auden, to Osip Mandelstam's critique of Stalin's moustache and the 'Ern Malley affair' in Australia.
See displays about Coracle Press, who exhibit in the Library throughout November, and DIY poetry zine-making, when publishers use a simple page of A4 for their publications.
Find out about the Henningham Family Press, who have created a special typeface as an elegy for the First World War.
Discover new and unusual items that have been collected in the Library over the past year.
Drop in any time between 11am and 6pm.
