  • The Blue Coatby Elizabeth Smither

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 15.99

    Whimsical and tender, this poetry collection examines the commonplace and the quirky for resonance, contemplation, and verve. From an out-of-season daffodil and a chipped Limoges plate to a lipstick stain on a poem and a bee being released, it illuminates the poetry in the everyday by focusing on a single image and expanding to the cusp of something... more...

  • God Loves Youby Kathryn Maris

    Seren 2013; US$ 17.99

    Borrowing rhythms, vocabulary, and themes from the Bible, this collection of poems is more than artful parody?it is an approach that accommodates large themes, unraveling them in new ways. The first section is a kaleidoscopic view of the sins and sinners of the modern city and opens, appropriately enough, with a vision of a flood to rival Noah?s. The... more...

  • A Better Lifeby John McAuliffe

    The Gallery Press 2014; US$ 10.94

    The world of John McAuliffe?s ?rst book is surprisingly populous, even social. The poems are grounded in speech and conversation and are consistently alert to that moment when one thing changes into another and to how a phrase clari?es into unexpected meaning, ‘seeing different things in the same light?. ‘His book is every bit as good as I hoped... more...

  • Bad Machineby George Szirtes

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.05

    The body is the 'bad machine' of George Szirtes' latest book of poems. The sudden death of his elderly father and of his younger friend, the poet Michael Murphy, remind him how machines – sources of energy and delight in their prime – go so easily wrong; and that change in the body is a signal for moving on. But language too is a body. Here, politics,... more...

  • The Mining Roadby Leanne O'Sullivan

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 11.59

    The Mining Road, Leanne O'Sullivan?s third poetry collection, finds inspiration in the disused copper mines that haunt the rugged terrain around Allihies, near her home at Beara, in West Cork. Like remnants of a lost world, the mines? ruined towers, shafts, man-engines and dressing floors, evoke an elemental landscape in which men and women laboured... more...

  • The Church of Omnivorous Lightby Robert Wrigley

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 14.51

    Robert Wrigley is a poet of America?s northern Rocky Mountains. Over three decades his poetry?s pervading concerns have been rural Western landscapes and humankind?s place within the natural world. His most recent poems have presented a portrait of a nation, one that is a singular part of a singular planet, with an exuberant and frequently exasperating... more...

  • Grun-tu-molaniby Vidyan Ravinthiran

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.05

    Vidyan Ravinthiran?s much-anticipated first collection contains many poems about Sri Lanka which fuse politics, personal history and myth. Yet his voice pitches itself not so much halfway between East and West as between emotional forthrightness and linguistic exuberance. Traditional forms contend with brusquer impulses in an era of technological... more...

  • Omnesia (alternative text)by W.N. Herbert

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.05

    Omnesia' is Bill Herbert's melding of omniscience and amnesia, the modern condition of thinking we can know everything about our world but, in actuality, retaining dangerously little. This doubly impressive new collection – published in twin editions, the alternative text and the remix – approaches and evades such flawed totality. For the past seven... more...

  • The Pleasure Groundby Richard Murphy

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 14.51

    Richard Murphy, now in his eighties, is one of Ireland?s most distinguished poets, known particularly for poems drawing on the people and history of the west of Ireland with classical rigour and 'unvarnished' clarity. He emerged in the 1950s with John Montague and Thomas Kinsella as one of the three major poets in the new Irish poetic renaissance.... more...

  • The Day Hospitalby Sally Read

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 11.59

    Across one day in London, twelve elderly men and women sit in flats, walk, or wait, and speak about their histories, their hopes, their loves, their disappointments and griefs – and above all seek to express who they are and what their life has been. Most are immigrants – Irish, West Indian, Polish, Italian, and German, struggling with a feeling of... more...
