Classical Texts

Coming soon, a new publication from Robert Crawford.

The concrete poems of Classical Texts take the culture of twenty-first-century texting, with its delight in tiny verbal messages, and fuse it with slivers of ancient Greek and Latin textuality – stories of heroes, myths, and gods. The texts distil narratives down to an essence: usually a single word.

‘Witty, absorbing and beautiful. Crawford turns classical narratives into riddling and sometimes profound typographical art, with myriad applications. The ideal gift for anyone from nine to ninety who loves the Greek and Roman stories.’ - Edith Hall

£8 paperback published 4th October 2021
