  • The Swerveby Julith Jedamus

    Carcanet 2012; US$ 14.51

    Julith Jedamus writes with an intensity that is at once passionate and precise. The poems in The Swerve create unforgettable landscapes: the whorls and spires of juniper in falling snow, Dutch skies of iridescent grey and lilac, the fire-scorched mountains of the American West. They are peopled by dancers and prisoners, sacrificial children and murderous... more...

  • Constellationsby Ian Pindar

    Carcanet 2012; US$ 14.51

    Constellations begins by celebrating sunlight and ends with the appearance of the moon, the coming of winter, snow and 'perpetual night'. In poems of compelling beauty Pindar takes us from a summer love affair by the sea to war and its aftermath, when night falls and 'the song that was promised has been sung'. more...

  • All Justby David Herd

    Carcanet 2012; US$ 14.51

    All Just, David Herd's second Carcanet collection, makes poems from the fractured phrases and competing idioms of contemporary movement, its translations between public and private spaces. Conversations start and are broken off. Public announcements intervene in private situations. In the background, an emergency is about to unfold. Taking bearings... more...

  • Misprintby James Womack

    Carcanet 2012; US$ 14.51

    ‘The only end of writing,? Dr Johnson said, ‘is to enable the readers better to enjoy life, or better to endure it.? Misprint offers the reader countries and languages perceived through the eyes of youth and loss. Untimely deaths and memories of far-off lands abound, some dreamed, some lived. In this first collection, James Womack plays with ideas... more...

  • Roosterby Gerry McGrath

    Carcanet 2012; US$ 14.51

    Rooster, Gerry McGrath?s second book of poems, observes with painterly precision the commonplaces of our experience, creating landscapes of emotional range and intensity. Biography, history, geography are interwoven in potent new forms: a lover?s fragile caress, the ‘expeditionary skill? of a dentist, the death of irony celebrated by crows ‘helpless... more...

  • Peltby Sarah Jackson

    Bloodaxe Books 2012; US$ 11.65

    Sarah Jackson explores the edges of writing in this uncanny book of touch. Tender, haunting, and yet beautifully poised, the poems in Pelt get right under your skin. The collection takes you on an unsettling journey between infancy and adulthood. Slipping from birds to blindness, from hides to hiding, Pelt uncovers the unfamiliar in the everyday.... more...

  • Breaking Silenceby Jacob Sam-La Rose

    Bloodaxe Books 2011; US$ 11.65

    Shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best First Collection and the Aldeburgh First Collection Prize. Jacob Sam-La Rose has been described as ‘a one-man literary industry?. This was Patrick Neate?s comment on the BBC Poetry Season website: ‘Passionate about poetry and its power to change people?s lives, he?s a lesson to us all. He?s also a damn fine... more...

  • Imaginary Menagerieby Ailbhe Darcy

    Bloodaxe Books 2011; US$ 11.65

    Ailbhe Darcy?s debut collection is a set of urgent despatches from her point of origin, Dublin, and from her skirmishes further afield: London, Paris, Africa, Eastern Europe or the States. Driven less by metaphor than by wild conceits, semantic leaps, and startling juxtapositions, these are poems that itch and pluck at the pelt of what we think we... more...

  • Conquestby Zoë Brigley

    Bloodaxe Books 2012; US$ 11.65

    Poetry Book Society Recommendation. Moving from the violent to the erotic, Conquest describes women questing to rediscover their own desire.

  • Almanacsby Jen Hadfield

    Bloodaxe Books 2005; US$ 11.65

    Almanacs: a mythic scrapbook, bag of cats, a one-man band. Almanacs is concerned with lists, rules and archetypes and what they don?t account for.
