About the Video: Maitreyabandhu launches his second poetry collection Yarn at Sheffield Buddhist Centre at on Sunday 25th October 2015.

Maitreyabandhu has won many poetry awards including the Keats-Shelley Prize, The Basil Bunting Award, the Geoffrey Dearmer Prize, the Ledbury Festival Competition, the Poetry Book and Pamphlet Competition, and the Iota Shots Award. His first collection, The Crumb Road (Bloodaxe) is a Poetry Book Society Recommendation.

His latest work Yarn is about the stories we tell. Collected around three dramatic monologues - The Cattle Farmer's Tale, The Travellers from Orissa and Aaron's Brother - Yarn includes an extended sequence of elegies, an account of a Warwickshire childhood and two stories about the Buddha. Ranging from the Holocaust to ancient India, from Kabir to modern Vietnam, using free verse, rhyme, prose poem and blank verse, Buddhist priest Maitreyabandhu's new collection is a vivid and at times disturbing account of the world we live in and the history that shapes us.
