Poems for a Liminal Age edited by Mandy Pannett


Poems for a Liminal Age is an anthology published by SPM Publications in support of Médecins Sans Frontières.


Poems for a Liminal Age offers a view of the way a certain group of people at a certain time in their planet’s history see their lives and the world they live in. The poems, taken together, make for fascinating if not comfortable reading. Many present an impression of bleakness in situations of confusion, loneliness, sickness, mediocrity and boredom. There is a sense of waste, of goodness being squandered, of corruption, brutality and loss. Other poems, however, evoke a sense of becoming, a feeling for nostalgia, beauty, trust and friendship, an impression of longing and the possibility of vision.
