That part of England’s east coast described in thís issue's article on England's Suffolk coast has long inspired writers and poets. Blake Morrison’s latest collection (just published by Chatto) is called Shingle Street, taking its name from a Suffolk coast village mentioned in our feature. Another interesting collection of writing about the region has just been published by Dunlin Press. Est: Collected Reports from East Anglia showcases new poetry and prose which evokes the spirit of the region’s landscapes. It gets well beyond “the tyranny of the horizon” — a phrase used by artist Luke Elwes who is a contributor to the volume — to explore the way in which ‘place’ manifests itself in these eastern flatlands of England.
