  • Selected Poemsby Sharon Olds

    Random House 2014; US$ 19.70

    Michael Ondaatje has called Sharon Olds's poetry 'pure fire in the hands' and cheered the 'roughness and humour and brag and tenderness and completion in her work as she carries the reader through rooms of passion and loss'. This rich selection - made by the author - exhibits those qualities in poem after poem, reflecting, moreover, an exciting experimentation... more...

  • The Chameleon Poetby Robert Fraser

    Random House 2014; US$ 22.52

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 90.00

    This is the first full-scale analysis of T.S. Eliot's six "Ariel Poems" as Christmas poems. Through close readings, Atkins argues that these poems considered together emerge as clearly related representations of the "impossible union" that occurred in the Incarnation. more...

    Scholars examining literature from former French colonies sometimes view it wrongly as simply an outgrowth of colonial literature.
