Yvonne Green: Selected Poems
The Selected Poem ebooks are a new 'digital-only' series drawn from the works of smith|doorstop poets published during the last 26 years.
Yvonne Green was born in London in 1957 to a German born father and Egyptian born mother both of whose parents originated in the Emirate of Boukhara. Her poems, she says, are informed by the languages and literatures she encountered in her youth coupled with the cultures she’s sought out. She practised at the Bar until she retired to publish the poems she’s always written. She says they reflect the concerns of a British Jewess.
