Yarn is about the stories we tell. Collected around four dramatic monologues – Hanoi Journal, The Cattle Farmer’s Tale, The Travellers from Orissa and Aaron’s Brother – Yarn includes an extended sequence of elegies, an account of a Warwickshire childhood and two stories about the Buddha. Ranging from the Holocaust to ancient India, from Kabir to modern Vietnam, using free verse, rhyme, prose poem and blank verse, Buddhist priest Maitreyabandhu’s new collection is a vivid and at times disturbing account of the world we live in and the history that shapes us.
His first book-length collection, The Crumb Road (Bloodaxe Books, 2013), a Poetry Book Society Recommendation, was widely praised.
