Sonnets for Albert remixes the form in a set of elegies for the poet’s father that navigate absentee fatherhood and masculine fragility As a poet, musician and novelist, Anthony Joseph has produced an extraordinary body of work including four critically acclaimed albums, and has been described as ‘the leader of the Black avantgarde in Britain’.
