Jean 'Binta' Breeze: The Verandah Poems

Jean 'Binta' Breeze: The Verandah Poems


An enthralling evening of readings and conversation with Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze who marked her 60th birthday this year with a new poetry collection, The Verandah Poems.As a renowned Jamaican poet and mentor, Ms Breeze's varied life and colourful personality has shaped a voice that demands attention. Her writing offers themes that chart the human experience and audiences are moved and inspired by her words.‘The third world girl, at home for a while, sets these attractive poems in rural Jamaica. The easy-going voice talks of personal development, celebrates friends and family, comments on mortality, freedom, gender and class. The poet is examining, subtly, a more or less contented return to where her life began.’ - Mervyn Morris, Poet Laureate of JamaicaThe event is produced by Leeds Beckett University and Renaissance One.
