    Michael Hofmann - a poet, translator, and intellectual vagabond - has established himself as one of the keenest critics of contemporary literature.

    'I would have a poet able bodied, fond of talking, a reader of the newspapers, capable of pity and laughter, informed in economics, appreciative of women, involved in personal relationships, actively interested in politics, susceptible to physical impressions.' Louis MacNeice's prescription is designed to look ordinary, rather than esoteric, but... more...

  • An Atmospherics of the City: Baudelaire and the Poetics of Noiseby Ross Chambers

    Fordham University Press 2015; US$ 34.99

    What happens to poetic beauty when history turns the poet from one who contemplates natural beauty and the sublime to one who attempts to reconcile the practice of art with the hustle and noise of the city? An Atmospherics of the City traces Charles Baudelaire's evolution from a writer who practices a form of fetishizing aesthetics in which poetry... more...

    Faber & Faber 2015; US$ 17.99

    This new collection from Don Paterson, his first since the Forward prize-winning Rain in 2009, is a series of forty sonnets. Some take a more traditional form, some are highly experimental, but what these poems share is a lyrical intelligence and musical gift that has been visible in his work since his first book of poems, Nil Nil , in 2009. ... more...

  • New Bearings in English Poetryby F. R. Leavis

    Faber & Faber 2015; US$ 12.99

    It is difficult now to imagine the shock that this book caused when it was first published in 1932. The author was a teacher at a Cambridge college, an intensely serious man who had been seriously wounded by poison gas on the Western Front, and he was not disposed to suffer foolishness gladly. His opening sentences were arresting: 'Poetry matters... more...

  • Kujibizanaby Ann Joyce Biersteker

    Michigan State University Press 1996; US$ 31.60

    Michigan State University Press 1996; US$ 8.95

    Versification: A Short Introduction is written by one of Australia's most distinguished poets. The book discusses poetic meter, and may be the only source you need.

  • Who is Buried in Chaucer's Tomb?by Joseph A. Dane

    Michigan State University Press 1998; US$ 47.60

    Joseph A. Dane examines the history of the books we now know as "Chaucer?s"?a history that includes printers and publishers, editors, antiquarians, librarians, and book collectors. The Chaucer at issue here is not a medieval poet, securely bound within his fourteenth-century context, but rather the product of the often chaotic history of the physical... more...
