Noctivagations collects poems and performance pieces written between the mid-nineties & 2001. Many are published here for the first time and range from the performance work Hidden Cities commissioned by the Ruskin School of Fine Art to her collaborations with the composer Martin Archer. ‘I am continuously awed by Monk’s opening out of experiential spaces both in terms of drama and close feeling, the way she catches the small words we offer in the face of immensities.’ (David Annwn) ‘Wild, erotic and deeply strange writing. A poetry that reveals the unspeakable wierdness of the everyday.’ (Sean Bonney) Typeset at Five Seasons Press.
