Arthur Berry: DANDELIONS


Arthur Berry, Potteries poet and Renaissance man, had a unique voice and spoke of a unique place. This is the third edition of Arthur's famous collection of poems; "Dandelions", first published in 1993. Its long-awaited reissue celebrates Arthur's legacy - continuing the work of pioneering director and champion, Peter Cheeseman. This year marks a significant reappraisal of Arthur's work, first at Stoke's Hot Air Literary Festival and then in a major exhibition at the Potteries Museum, allowing new audiences and aficionados to revel in Arthur Berry's rich world.
