In Jack Warren's debut pamphlet Rude Mechanical, the poems sing with the rhythm and cadences of working life. Warren's poetry moves from the factory to the pub 'searching for a moment's weary epiphany' or finds him staring at the stars in 'the serenity of a cigarette break'. In Rude Mechanical, Warren looks to the role of art, literature and labour in our lives, the value of the natural world, and in an extended sequence on a long-distance relationship, he writes lyrically of falling and remaining in love.


Jack Warren is a gardener & environmentalist from Somerset. He holds masters degrees in both Poetics and Applied Ecology. Rude Mechanical is his first pamphlet with Broken Sleep.
