The Red and Yellow Nothing
The Red and Yellow Nothing is a Ted Hughes nominated pamphlet about gender, genre, race and history. Based on the Arthurian tale of Sir Morien, Jay Bernard takes re-creates a medieval world that is brutal and magical. Race, gender, science, myth, sexuality – everything is overturned but the sound of poetry.
"The pace and menace of the red and Yellow Nothing had the horse pace of the ride of the Valkyries. It is time travelling through gender race and genre and is explored through an Arthurian legend- it reads like a song in my head." Kathryn Williams, singer-songwriter and Ted Hughes judge.
