Welcome to The Poplar Tree,
One of Manchester’s literature-orientated blogspots that will include editorial features on authors, reviews of books, films and anything in-between, such as TV programmes and current affairs. It will probably have a huge word count, and as such, posts may take a little while to emerge. Coming up with content for features and reviews is a long struggle and The Poplar Tree is all about quality literature, so it will be worth it in the end (hopefully).
Over the past decade, The Poplar Tree has read a countless number of books by dozens of authors, including:
Auden / Burgess / Bronte / Brooker / Hughes / Heaney / Armitage / Doestoyevsky / Solzhenitzyn / T.S Eliot / Forster/ Golding / Coupland / Joyce / Lawrence / Larkin / Miller / Nash / Orwell / Poe / Shakespeare / Tolstoy / Dahl / Yeats / Greene / Owen / Kafka / Pynchon / Ginsberg / Wyndham (John) / McCabe / Hemingway …
The Poplar Tree’s favourite critics are Louis Theroux and Charlie Brooker because they’re honest, opinionated and unafraid to question the truth. They produce The Poplar Tree’s favourite TV shows such as Louis Theroux’s Weird Weekends and Screenwipe.
Thanks for reading this, enjoy the rest of the blog.
