    The poems in this debut collection by New Zealand poet John Dennison are concerned, above all, with love, and with the strange, unlooked-for manner of its appearances among us. Marked by an emotional acuity and formal deftness, Otherwise draws us into confrontations with our equivocal and finite nature. Here too, because ‘some things bear repeating?,... more...

  • Poppies in Translationby Sujata Bhatt

    Carcanet 2015; US$ 14.57

    Indonesia, South Africa, Estonia, Lithuania, Shetland, Nicaragua – many worlds meet in these poems as nature dyes Sujata Bhatt?s many languages with its own hues. The real merges with the surreal and the allegorical, certainties are undone in an open-ended quest. A Chinese cook ignores a predatory snake, Gregor Samsa?s sister proposes a different... more...

  • The World Before Snowby Tim Liardet

    Carcanet 2015; US$ 14.57

    During a record-breaking blizzard in Boston, two poets met, one American and one English. This meeting marked the beginning of a life-transforming love affair.

The poems document some... more...

  • The Sleepwalker at Seaby Kelly Grovier

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 14.51

    The poems in The Sleepwalker at Sea tread a fluid line between dream and wakefulness, memory and loss, presence and longing. Leave a house and it suddenly fills with 'the unseen'; consult 'The Book of Clues' and discover only 'ghostly hints' of a self you've left behind. Linked by their restless displacement, pacing haunted spaces, these are poems... more...

  • Pessimism for Beginnersby Sophie Hannah

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 13.05

    Sophie Hannah's sharp pen dissects modern life and relationships with insouciant honesty and ruthless wit, and her love poems evoke timeless feelings with a shrewd simplicity that deepens her range. An edge of desolation, tenderness -- an occasional flash of cruelty -- and an ebullient delight in language make this a book of bittersweet pleasures.... more...

  • Watering Canby Caroline Bird

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 14.51

    Caroline Bird's two earlier collections were acclaimed for their exuberant energy, surreal imagination and passion -- 'a bit of a Howl for a new generation', wrote the Hudson Review. Watering Can celebrates life as an early twenty-something. The poems, writes Caroline Bird, 'contain prophetic videos, a moon colonised by bullies, weeping scholars,... more...
