We Brits PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

We Brits free pdf John Agard has been subverting British poetry for the past 30 years with his mischievous, satirical fables which overturn all our expectations. In "We Brits", the Guyanese-born word magician gives an outsider's inside view of British life in poems which both challenge and cherish our peculiar culture and hallowed institutions. Some explore hidden connections in British history, while others are wildly inventive forays into comic territory: Shakespeare addresses the tabloids, Jesus, Buddha and Mohammed arrive in Britain at Gatwick, Heathrow and Dover, and all the foreign words flee the English dictionary.
