About this title:

Synopsis:

I m weary lying here among distant peoples, places,in sickness now thoughts come to me, of what s not here.
Ovid, Tristia, III.3.13-14

How does it feel to be a foreigner? Can you choose where you call home? What if you reject your home or your home rejects you? Homesickness and Exile is a fascinating collection of poems about the fundamental human need to belong to a place, as poets from across the world provide profound and moving insights into the emotional pull of countries and cities. Poems about homecoming, departure and both voluntary and involuntary exile provoke reflections on alienation and identity, and a recurring theme is the yearning for a sense of belonging and acceptance by a place.

This anthology is inspired by the Tristia, a collection of poems written by the Roman poet Ovid after he was banished from Rome by the Emperor for an unknown misdemeanour. Homesickness and Exile expands on Ovid s themes and considers spiritual as well as physical exile in the modern world, with poets writing about rootlessness and geographical ennui.

Review: The work contained within the anthology wanders as freely as the many lost and homesick souls that populate its poems. There are meditations on being a stranger, poems of longing, and songs of celebration taking great joy in the solace of home. [...] The book, as one has come to expect from The Emma Press, is a beautiful artefact. The care and dedication spent in the editorial process, and in the crafting of the poems themselves, is reflected in the elegance of the physical tome and Emma Wright s unique and enchanting illustrations. As something of a stateless pirate, this collection reaches out with new connections upon each reading, and I m increasingly feeling that home is having an Emma Press book in my hands.
Steven Nash, Sabotage Reviews

A charming little blue book with a wistful boat sketching on the front, Homesickness and Exile is filled with longing, hope, history and nostalgia.
Caroline Cook, The Reading Post

This is a lovingly crafted and engaging collection of poetry. The charm and variety of the work means that each page offers an unexpected perspective of the shared theme. Whilst some of the poets are established, with their poetry having been widely published, others are at a far earlier stage in their careers. Regardless, the quality is excellent. This collection is perfect for longstanding lovers of poetry, yet accessible enough to appeal to more curious newcomers to the form.
