Peter Sargent, writer of historical books in East Anglia new book "My Word" will be launching on 1st October and is an entertaining and informative safari through the jungle of our evolving language. When was it a good thing to be a bully? Who was the clown who almost wrecked Cleopatra’s suicide scene in William Shakespeare’s play? What have singing goats got to do with tragedy? And what connects goats, hedgehogs and supermodels with the word capricious? Were Cossack cavalrymen the first to eat in a bistro, and were twittering birds the first to use jargon. Above all, what on earth can King Henry VIII and Paddington Bear have in common?

The poems give a lighter view of living in the lockdown, as the writers overcome their domestic frustations and the day to day lockdown routine. But they also pay tribute to our front line workers who have kept the country going.…
