Feeling the pressure includes new work by many of Britain’s leading poets, writing from highly individual perspectives but all deeply concerned about the theme of climate change and its implications for the world we live in. Included in the book are significant and important statements about current scientific research, provided by scientists working at the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at Newcastle University. Several of the poets featured are themselves scientists, belying the notion that art and science inhabit different worlds. All of them were either born in the UK or now work here – any as creative writing tutors, helping others to develop the means of expressing their own personal reactions and visions. This anthology does something similar, offering fresh insights into a now familiar issue and helping us to reconsider our own attitudes that may have become too formulaic. The book will, it is hoped, assist us in becoming both more reflective and eloquent.
