  • Intercultural Voices in Contemporary British Literatureby Lars Ole Sauerberg

    Palgrave Macmillan 2001; US$ 155.00

    During the last decades of the twentieth century it has become increasingly difficult to consider British literature as 'national' or 'mainstream'. The book investigates contemporary fiction and poetry written in, or relating to, Britain and uncovers a distinct sense of a new and different national and social reality. Tracing literary effects of migration,... more...

  • The Routledge Anthology of Cross-Gendered Verseby Alan Parker; Mark Willhardt

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 45.95

    Both male and female poets cross the gender line: men assume a female voice and women a male voice. The Routledge Anthology of Cross-Gendered Verse is a fascinating collection of such poems, beginning in the age of Chaucer and working its way through to the present day. Together these poems offer a unique collection of masks, personae and voices,... more...

  • The Glenbuchat Balladsby David Buchan; James Moreira; Robert Scott

    University Press of Mississippi 2007; US$ 60.00

    Sometime in the early nineteenth century, most likely in the year 1818, the Reverend Robert Scott, minister of the parish of Glenbuchat in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, compiled a collection of traditional ballads that until now has not been published. Most of the ballad collections produced during the Scottish Romantic Revival were eventually anthologized... more...

  • Flora Poeticaby Sarah Maguire

    Random House 2011; US$ 18.18

    This beautiful anthology brings together over 250 poems about flowers, plants and trees from eight centuries of writing in English, creating a rich bouquet of intriguing juxtapositions. Fourteenth-century lyrics sit next to poems of the twenty-first century; celebrations of plants native to the English soil share the volume with more exotic plant... more...

  • William McGonagallby Chris Hunt

    Birlinn 2011; US$ 11.83

    William McGonagall was born in Edinburgh in 1830. His father was a poor hand-loom weaver, and his work took his family to Glasgow, then to Dundee. William attended school for eighteen months before the age of seven, and received no further formal education. Later, as a mill worker, he used to read books in the evening, taking great interest in Shakespeare's... more...

  • Shakespeare's Sonnetsby Philip Terry

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 14.51

    Inspired by the flotsam of contemporary culture, Philip Terry transforms Shakespeare's sonnet sequence into a celebration of language unleashed. The results are as disrespectful and anarchic as a cartoon - and as assured in their control of line. Philip Terry, an acclaimed translator of the poetry of Raymond Queneau, plays language games by the rules... more...

  • Collected Later Poems 1988-2000by R.S. Thomas

    Bloodaxe Books 2011; US$ 16.04

    R.S. Thomas (1913-2000) is one of the major poets of our time, as well as one of the finest religious poets in the English language and Wales's greatest poet. This substantial gathering of his late poems shows us the final flowering of a truly great poet still writing at the height of his powers right through his 70s and 80s. It begins with his autobiographical... more...

  • Collected Poemsby Edwin Morgan

    Carcanet 2012; US$ 29.09

    Edwin Morgan 'catches in full sight' in his lyric epiphanies, in the focus and refocus of sequences, the wily relocation of words in concrete poems, the weird rhythms of sound poems. His transforming imagination is democratic, generous and inclusive. Even the sonnet form becomes a new experiment for a poet of questing and anarchic vision, unwilling... more...
