AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Argot: cant, slang, jargon, vernacular, idiom, patter, patois -

'In this collection of poems, Christopher Konrad explores the domain of the personal, perhaps even secret speech; the half hidden languages derived from culture, family, and desire. Employing that slippage of language which only poetry can properly convey - the liminal, free-floating structure of the written or spoken word - enabling it to be just what we make of it, moment by moment, in a changing emotional, cultural, linguistic and historical context.

'Roland Leach, poet and proprietor of Sunline Press, says: Argot is a great collection; an erudite collection in fact. So many new angles … the number of forms used and everything seemed unexpected and a surprise.' (Publication summary)
