Pascale Petit trained at the Royal College of Art and spent the first part of her life as an artist, before deciding to concentrate on poetry. Since then she has published five collections, three of which were shortlisted for the TS Eliot Prize and featured as Books of the Year in the Times Literary Supplement, Observer and Independent. In 2004 the Poetry Book Society selected her as one of the Next Generation Poets. She teaches poetry writing courses for a number of organisations, including Tate Modern. Petit has read her work at many festivals around the world and travelled to Mexico several times to research Kahlo’s life. What the Water Gave Me was first published in the UK by Seren in 2010 and was shortlisted for the TS Eliot Prize and the Wales Book of the Year.
Poems in the voice of Frida Kahlo. Some are close interpretations of Kahlo’s work, while others are parallels or version homages where Petit draws on her experience as a visual artist to create alternative ‘paintings’ with words. More than just a verse biography, this collection explores how Kahlo transformed trauma into into art after the artist’s near-fatal bus accident.
