Poetry Rebellion is an inspired collection of powerful poems to stir the soul and provoke change.

Life in the twenty-first century is throwing up challenges across the globe--from the climate emergency to extreme politics, from women's rights to gender identity. We can often feel powerless and unable to make a difference in these bewildering times. But throughout history, and even now, poets, writers, and campaigners have used the power of the beautiful word to exhort us to stand up, rebel, and help make that change. From anthemic nature poems and Irish folksongs to Allen Ginsberg's evocative "Sunflower Sutra" and George Moses Horton's "On Liberty and Slavery," from William Blake's "Auguries of Innocence" and the poetic prose of Nan Shepherd to Jean "Binta" Breeze's "Tweet Tweet," the words of famous poets mingle with lesser-known voices in this powerful collection. As Pablo Neruda said, "Poetry is rebellion.

Paul Evans is a nature writer, Guardian Country Diarist, poet, broadcaster, journalist, and senior lecturer in creative writing at Manchester Metropolitan University. He is the author of Field Notes from the Edge (a journey through Britain's secrets wilds). He broadcasts regularly for Radio 4 nature programs.
