In his previous full-length collection, The Knowledge (Nine Arches Press, 2015), American expat. Robert Peake confronts London with fresh eyes through poetry. In Hertfordshire Songs, he sets his sights on the quirks of suburban and pastoral Britain. Reminiscent of Sir John Betjeman’s Metro-Land, this sequence of fifteen poems about the townships of Hertfordshire will take you on a cheeky journey from raves to roundabouts, weirs to war memorials.
Whether you are a resident of Hertfordshire, or just always wanted to be one, there’s something for you to sing about in Hertfordshire Songs.
