Isabelle Kenyon – Please Hear What I’m Not Saying


Disclaimer: While I aim to be unbiased, I received a copy of this for free.

I’m not really sure what it would take for a poetry book to get a five out of five for me, but this one was pretty damn close. It’s a stunning collection of dozens of different poets all writing about mental health issues, and proceeds from the anthology are put towards Mind, the mental health charity.

What I liked about this collection is that there’s such a diverse selection of poetry covering all kinds of different subjects. So while I could relate to the anxiety and depression poems, I also learned when reading poems about borderline personality disorder and Alzheimer’s. I also liked the fact that the different sections come without titles and invite you, as the reader, to come up with them.

All in all then, I don’t think this necessarily has breakthrough appeal if you’re not normally into poetry. But if you’re a fan of contemporary and indie poetry as I am then there’s a lot to love about this one, especially if you’re also interested in the mental health angle. Its diversity and the sheer number of poets included within its pages make it a pretty  good way to meet your new favourite poets. Enjoy.
