Commissioned by New Writing North for Durham Book Festival, Heathcliff Adrift is a series of narrative poems, first exhibited alongside stunning landscape photographs taken by Nick Small.

Conceived while walking the moors of the West Riding in Yorkshire, the work considers the questions: where did Emily Bronte’s eponymous anti-hero go and what did he see? It explores the idea of what happened to Heathcliff during his ‘missing’ three years in Wuthering Heights, an era in which the industrial revolution was in its earliest days and the ragged beauty of the landscape was under threat from the arrival of mechanisation. Further themes include nature, violence, survival and the changing seasons.

The book is limited to 100 bespoke copies printed by Tangerine Press. It includes 32 hand-sewn pages and features recycled cairn stiff card covers and Heritage Book White acid-free text paper, a foil-stamped front cover and black and white photo by Nick Small.

Benjamin Myers is an author, poet and journalist. His novels include Beastings (2014), Pig Iron (2012), which won the inaugural Gordon Burn Prize, and Richard (2010), a Sunday Times book of the year.
Heathcliff Adrift will be exhibited in further galleries throughout 2015 and beyond. Please check www.benmyers.com for details.
