Yarn PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Yarn free pdf Yarn is about the stories we tell. Collected around four dramatic monologues - Hanoi Journal, The Cattle Farmer's Tale, The Travellers from Orissa and Aaron's Brother - Yarn includes an extended sequence of elegies, an account of a Warwickshire childhood and two stories about the Buddha. Ranging from the Holocaust to ancient India, from Kabir to modern Vietnam, using free verse, rhyme, prose poem and blank verse, Buddhist priest Maitreyabandhu's new collection is a vivid and at times disturbing account of the world we live in and the history that shapes us. His first book-length collection, The Crumb Road (Bloodaxe Books, 2013), a Poetry Book Society Recommendation, was widely praised.

About Maitreyabandhu

Maitreyabandhu was born Ian Johnson in 1961, in Henley-in-Arden, Warwickshire. His parents ran a coach firm on the High Street. Initially trained as a nurse at the Walsgrave Hospital, Coventry, he went on to study fine art at Goldsmiths College, London, alongside Sarah Lucas and Damien Hirst. He started attending classes at the London Buddhist Centre (LBC) in 1986, and moved into a residential community above the LBC in 1987. He was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order in 1990 and given the name Maitreyabandhu. Since then he has lived and worked at the LBC, teaching Buddhism and meditation. He has written two books on Buddhism, Thicker than Blood: Friendship on the Buddhist Path (2001) and Life with Full Attention: a Practical Course in Mindfulness (2009), both with Windhorse Publications. His forthcoming book, The Journey and the Guide, also with Windhorse, is due in 2015. In 2010 he founded Poetry East, a poetry venue exploring the relationship between spiritual life and poetry, and attracting many of Britain's foremost poets, including Jo Shapcott, David Constantine, Don Paterson and Sean O'Brien. Maitreyabandhu has won the Keats-Shelley Prize, the Basil Bunting Award, the Geoffrey Dearmer Prize, and the Ledbury Festival Poetry Competition. His first pamphlet The Bond won the Poetry Business Book and Pamphlet Competition (2010) and was shortlisted for the Michael Marks Award. Vita Brevis, his second pamphlet, won the iOTA Shots Award (2011). His first book-length collection, The Crumb Road (Bloodaxe Books, 2013) was a Poetry Book Society Recommendation. His second collection, Yarn, is due from Bloodaxe in September 2015. He has published articles exploring the relationship between spiritual life and poetry in Poetry Review, Magma, Agenda, Assent, and In Their Own Words: Contemporary Poets on their Poetry (Salt, 2012). His poems have been anthologised in both the UK and USA.
