Challis, John ORCID: https://orcid.org/0009-0005-1898-6458 (2023) 'The Knowledge'. In: Greening, John and Gardner, Kevin, (eds.) Contraflow: Lines of Englishness 1922-2022. Renard Press, pp. 52-53

Full text not available from this repository.


Contraflow takes a completely new approach to the subject of Englishness, and in this stimulating and entertaining anthology two poetic currents flow against each other, so that different decades merge, well-known stanzas brushing shoulders with more neglected verse.

What emerges is an extraordinary mosaic of poetic responses to English history, culture and landscape – satirical, visionary, lyrical, comic, political, meditative – yet one which offers a recognisable picture of a land both united and divided through a hundred years.
