  • Tiger Facing the Mistby Pauline Stainer

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 11.59

    Pauline Stainer is a poet ‘working at the margins of the sacred?, conveying sensations ‘with an economy of means that is breathtaking… her poems are not merely artefacts, they have an organic life of their own?

  • Ireland Is Changing Motherby Rita Ann Higgins

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 11.59

    Ireland Is Changing Mother is the latest collection from Rita Ann Higgins: provocative and heart-warming poems of high jinx, jittery grief and telling social comment by a gutsy, anarchic chronicler of the lives of the Irish dispossessed, before as well as since the demise of the Celtic tiger. 'It shouldn't be unusual to hear a smart, sassy, unabashed,... more...

  • Nine Fathom Deepby David Constantine

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 11.59

    Like the work of the European poets who have nourished him, David Constantine?s poetry is informed by a profoundly humane vision of the world. In his title-poem – which illuminates the themes of the whole book – the lovers are a utopian answering back against the curse (following a crime against Nature) that is carried by the ship passing above them.... more...

  • The Winter Sleep of Captain Lemassby Harry Clifton

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.05

    At once a reckoning with a lost political legacy, a meditation on love, marriage and middle age, and a reaching back into foreign ancestry, The Winter Sleep of Captain Lemass is Harry Clifton's fullest and most ambitious attempt so far to bring together, in a single book, the discordant elements of an evolving Ireland, as it discovers itself, through... more...

  • The Holding Centreby Harry Clifton

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 14.51

    This selection presents for the first time the thirty year trajectory of an acclaimed Irish poet who has lived and worked between the secular and the religious, Eros and history, Ireland and elsewhere, be it west Africa after civil war, south-east Asia after the Khmer Rouge or Europe at the collapse of the Berlin Wall, and whose extraordinary body... more...

  • The Lady & the Hareby Pauline Stainer

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.05

  • Stone Milkby Anne Stevenson

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 11.59

    The poems of Stone Milk address the way the written word preserves yet distorts the lives depending on it for fame or survival. Anne Stevenson?s highly engaging new collection opens with A Lament for the Makers, an experimental sequence based on medieval dream poetry that plays with a Dante-inspired yet modern, scientific vision of an underworld of... more...

  • Collected Poemsby David Constantine

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 14.51

    David Constantine is one the finest poets writing in English. His poetry stands outside the current literary climate, and like the work of the European poets who have nourished him, it is informed by a profoundly humane vision of the world. Its mood is often one of unease, elegiac or comically edged, barbed with pain or tinged with pleasure. His poems... more...

  • Crossing the Snowlineby Pauline Stainer

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 11.59

(John Burnside). Crossing the Snowline charts her return to life after numbing grief. These luminous poems are a testament of recovery, renewal... more...
