Resurrection of a Black Man offers contemporary poems about male family dynamics – the peace, the violence, the fault lines – using language that aims to transcend global trauma, and reach into the healing heart, creating men whose "words fall out as petals". This collection contains the winners of the inaugural Ironbridge Prize 2022, the Gloucester Poetry Society Open Competition and the Fosseway Prize.

''Unflinching in its depiction of brutality and oppression, Jenny Mitchell's formally accomplished poetry is richly-textured and flexible. Essential reading.”
~ Moniza Alvi
"Jenny Mitchell’s powerful and evocative poems are a bridge of empathy and solidarity. She conveys the personal impacts of political decisions and policies with a clarity and precision which is both shocking and deeply moving. Everyone should read this work."
