Synopsis

Love Poems by Benjamin Zephaniah

Following Benjamin Zephaniah's debut with Face, his first novel published by Bloomsbury - here is another first - Benjamin Zephaniah's first anthology of poems - truly selected with passion. The Author: Benjamin Zephaniah is probably one of the most high-profile international authors writing today, with an enormous breadth of appeal, equally popular with both adults and children. His first novel, Face, for young adults, is published by Bloomsbury. Most well-known for his performance poetry with a political edge for adults and ground-breaking performance poetry for children, Benjamin also has his own rap/reggae band, and has appeared on Desert Island Discs. He is in constant demand internationally to perform his work: he is (he thinks) Nelson Mandela's favourite poet, and is the only Rastafarian poet to be short-listed for the Chairs of Poetry for both Oxford and Cambridge University. Benjamin lives in East Ham, London. Illustrator: Christopher Corr is a highly successful Fine Art artist, often exhibiting in London. He has been commissioned by the Royal Mail to illustrate their Commemorative Millennium Stamp of Peace.
