Paperback New and Signed First Edition, First Printing.
We are lucky enough to have a personal visit from Jacob Polley who will sign in our bookshop in April 2017.
Jackself is the fourth collection from one of Britain’s finest poets, and sees Jacob Polley at the height of his powers. In one of the most original books of poetry to appear in the last decade, Jackself spins a kind of ‘fictionalized autobiography’ through nursery rhymes, riddles and cautionary tales, and through the many ‘Jacks’ of our folktale, legend, phrase and fable – everyman Jacks and no one Jacks, Jackdaw, Jack-O-Lantern, Jack Sprat, Cheapjack and Jack Frost.
