Adelle Stripe’s debut poetry collection is a poignant collection of works that announces an individual new voice in modern poetry.

She has an original, sharp, and caustic style; holding an audacity and confidence - taking the reader from the dramatic clouded peak of Helvellyn through to the scrum of the Saturday shop-floor of Primark in Peckham within the same poem.

Collectively the works form a portrait of a wild imagination disciplined enough to nail down clear lines with intimacy and economy.

Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid is a unique work; it is part confession, part protest – and is a self assured debut from a country girl (she is the daughter of a dairy farmer) finding her balance in the heart of the East End
