We’re very excited to give you a date for your October diaries, with the launch of our latest Team-Up, Surveyors’ Riddles! On Fri 2 October at 7.30 pm, get thee to the Albion Beatnik, 34 Walton St, Oxford for a night of poetic chicanery and outright lies.
The result of some serious formal (and informal) mischief by poets Giles Goodland and Alistair Noon, Surveyors’ Riddles is a sequence written in the classic ‘enigmenga’ form and translated out of the original tongue.
At least, it might be. Frankly, the more you read of this devious title, the more you come to doubt a words its authors are saying. Expect layered, gneissic verses glittering with allusions to the contemporary, the historical and the alt-historical, and spot the tricks where you can.
