RELEASED 14th FEB 2019
Poet and performer Scarlett Sabet has a unique ability to convey the purest of human emotions through her beautiful prose. In her fourth book of collected poetry Camille, Sabet explores the intricate theme of love.
Released on Valentine’s Day 2019, Camille offers a nuanced interpretation of love and all it encompasses. Featuring a selection of traditional ‘love’ poems that show the soaring joy of intimacy, passion and sensuality, and others that delve into destruction, obsession and infatuation; Camille is a tender and earnest meditation on true love.
Including poems such as ‘Possession,’ ‘Lilith in the Midheaven’ and ‘Scorpio,’ the poems featured in this collection will resonate with many.
Award-winning poet Matthew Yeager has described Sabet’s work as “darkly sonorous vowel music…full of wildness”. Returning to Shakespeare and Company for her forthcoming book launch and reading, Sabet joins the ranks of Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, Ernest Hemingway and F.Scott Fitzgerald who were all frequent visitors and performers at the legendary Parisian bookshop, regarded as a literary institution. Since its opening in 1951, Shakespeare and Company remains the epicentre of counterculture and still welcomes young and emerging writers as well today’s leading authors.
Hailed as one of the brightest new stars on the international poetry scene, Scarlett
Sabet has become renowned for her emotive poetry readings and has performed at some of the world’s most treasured book shops synonymous with poetry and the Beat Generation including City Lights, San Francisco and The Troubadour, London, where she is poet-in-residence.
