Burning Babylon by Michael Symmons Roberts

A powerful sequence of poems about one of the most contentious missile bases of the cold war.

In intensely dramatic poems Roberts describes the public rise and fall of Greenham Common – juxtaposed against his private experience as a teenager living a mile away from the huge, lethal power lying latent behind barbed wire in the middle of England. This is war poetry, from an undeclared war in which threat was the most potent weapon.
