Buried Garden: Lockdown with the Lost Poets of Abney Park Cemetery – Chris McCabe



The garden exists for those who are ready to see it… Venture into the dense foliage of Abney Park Cemetery in the fourth instalment of writer and literary detective Chris McCabe’s project to unearth the lost poets of London’s Victorian cemeteries – the Magnificent Seven. Propelled through Stoke Newington’s garden-cemetery by Edgar Allan Poe, Arthur Machen and Iain Sinclair, McCabe discovers the rich stories of resurrectionists, nonconformists, celebrated hymnologists, and one great lost writer from the Caribbean.

In this visionary narrative, combining literary and historical research with dream-like meditations on poetry, nature and death, McCabe starts to believe that Abney Park could be the site of an alternative reality – a buried garden for a year in lockdown.
