Front cover of Arthur Talks

In her debut poetry collection, Ruth Hobson writes passionately about homelessness, as experienced by people she met during many years at Nottingham's Emmanuel House Support Centre - helping us see them as human individuals but also mythical figures.

In poems like The Sword in the Stone, Ruth skillfully interweaves the legend of King Arthur with the lives of those at the edges of urban, austerity Britain.

Arthur Talks launched in August 2019 at the Nottingham Poetry Festival. You can order the book for £8.99 (excluding postage) from this page or Amazon, ISBN 978-1-911587-23-1.
