John Agard Clever Backbone | 03-Mar-09

Charles Darwin's great-great-granddaughter Ruth Padel is not the only poet to have published a book inspired by Darwin in 2009, the bicentenary of his birth and 150th anniversary of his magnum opus On the Origin of Species.

Poetry Library favourite, John Agard, has published Clever Backbone (Bloodaxe).  The blurb on the back of the book states that Agard "plays havoc with biology and makes a monkey out of Darwinian evolution"!
