  • We Look Like Thisby Dan Burt

    Carcanet 2012; US$ 14.51

    We Look Like This anatomizes how history, violence, power, lust and mortality at work on us. Burt's formal, muscular language evokes war, want, cruelty and hope, and a childhood among ‘tough Jews? in Philadelphia, dominated by his father Joe, son of Ukrainian immigrants, butcher, boxer and, last, coastal fisherman. more...

  • 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...

  • My Time in Spaceby Tim Robinson

    The Lilliput Press 2012; US$ 10.19

    This is a stimulating book of exploration, experience and philosophical meditation. As always with Robinson, the writing is exact and eloquent, the terrritory exciting. This is a book to cherish and re-read, challenging, infuriating and satisfying in turn, with nuggets of poetry glinting between the curves and planes of its ideas - and passages of... more...

  • A to Bby Gerry McGrath

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2008; US$ 15.95

    What began as a single poem written on a long drive into the countryside north of Glasgow has evolved into an imaginative collection exploring memory, journey, vulnerability, and love. This book of haunting verse ranges in theme, with observations on everything from a plane's ascent into the evening sky to imagined piano notes being absorbed by the... more...

  • Arguing with Malarchyby Carola Luther

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2011; US$ 15.95

    A collection of poetry by South African-born, Yorkshire-based Carola Luther, this account is a chronicle of mourning, renewal, and the realities of human relationships. Addressed to the eponymous ‘Malarchy?—a magical, quarrelsome, and often drunken young boy—these poems explore silences, absences, the unspoken communication between animals and human... more...

  • Deceiving Wild Creaturesby Jeremy Over

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2009; US$ 15.95

    Creating a world of delight and amazement through language and love, this collection of bright, innocent poems celebrates the confusion of everyday life. Written with a brazen defiance of all things grave and serious, these poems disentangle the absurd and unreasonable, only to create a fun and challenging knot of language that defines the elusive... 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...
