Suffolk Bang was a notoriously hard cheese made from milk which had been skimmed several times. This cheese provides the name for a sequence of poems about working class life in rural Suffolk during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. These three poems come from that sequence and in the accompanying commentary I explore the idea that poetic form can be skimmed and hardened and some of the ways in which this might relate to social power.
