SWEET HEART: EROTIC VERSE
In this new limited edition of his verse, Newcastle upon Tyne poet Keith Armstrong, famed for his community-based work in North East England and for his literary exchange work throught Europe and beyond, shows us a new side of himself.
This set of erotic poetry reflects the passionate, more personal, side of his nature, finding the erotic in the back lanes of North Shields, on the streets of Paris and in the beds of Newcastle.
'A subtle observer of beauty whether he chooses to do so from the position of global citizen, mourner, lover, friend or son.' (Paul Summers, Dream Catcher).
‘There are those who tell the terrible truth in all its loveliness. Keith Armstrong is one of them, a fine poet who refuses to turn his back on the wretched ofthe Earth. He is one of the best and I hope his voice will be heard more and more widely.’ (Adrian Mitchell,
'A joyous, subversive, delightful, unpretentious, funny, anarchistic free spirit underpins Armstrong's work. It will cheer you up. His poems are technically achieved, funny, witty, touching, and sufficiently various for there to be something to light up every brain which responds to poetry. One way to make the world better would be to give poets as good as Armstrong their due.' (Alan Dent, Editor, The Penniless Press).
