Graduate poet publishes new anthology

Poet Selina Nwulu, who graduated from the University with a degree in French and Italian from the School of Modern Languages, has published a new anthology of poems called The Secrets I Let Slip.

The website describes the book as a catalogue of dichotomies and an exploration of unbelonging, where Selina straddles cultures, politics, and values, seeking identity. In the itchy-footed job-seeker, the independent romantic or the disillusioned activist, she strives to reconcile the warring elements of her character.

Fusing the personal with the political, The Secrets I Let Slip is a tribute to modern angst, a bittersweet celebration of the everyday outsider, and an irresistible invitation from an emerging poet of considerable talent.

Dr Rabah Aissaoui, Head of the School of Modern Languages, said: "The School of Modern languages is very proud of Selina’s many achievements as an environmental and human rights campaigner, a writer and a poet. The recent publication of her poems and her outstanding performance at the last Edinburgh festival are further reflections of her many talents."
