About this title

Synopsis:

In True Confessions & New Cliches, Liz Lochhead has brought together a selection of the best of her raps, songs, sketches and monologues from her plays and revues. She pokes fun at the seriousness with which we deal with everyday events in touching and hilarious ways. For a poet who believes so much in poetry belonging to the voice, these works hold a special place and they have become firm favorites with the many fans who attend her public readings.

About the Author:

Liz Lochhead is the Scottish Makar (Poet Laureate) and is regarded as one of Scotland's best and most popular poets and dramatists. Her poetry is characterized by a self-conscious effort to mimic the idioms of speech, adopting a range of spoken styles that include the lyrical use of cliché, rap, colloquialism and even advertising language in an effort to raise the profile of the marginalized voices of both Scots and women. Her most famous poetry collections include Dreaming Frankenstein and Collected Poems (1984), Bagpipe Muzak (1991) and The Colour of Black and White: Poems 1984-2003 was published by Polygon in 2003. She became Makar in 2011 after the death of Edwin Morgan.
