CONDUCTORS OF CHAOS

*PLEASE NOTE THAT IAIN IS NOT APPEARING AT THIS EVENT*

We examine the work of the poetry outsiders gathered in Conductors of Chaos (Picador).

Last year saw the announcement of the 2014 Next Generation Poets, 20 poets promoted as the ones ‘expected to dominate the poetry landscape of the coming decade’.

In 1996, partly in response to the 1994 New Generation Poets initiative, Iain Sinclair edited his groundbreaking anthology, collecting together the work of poets ‘submerged’ in the poetry landscape, a poetry not recognised by the mainstream.

As Sinclair said in his introduction to Conductors of Chaos, ‘The work I value is that which seems most remote, alienated, fractured.’

Celebrate the work of these ‘elective outsiders’.
