  • Chickby Hannah Lowe

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 11.59

    Hannah Lowe's first book of poems takes you on a journey round her father, a Chinese-black Jamaican migrant who disappeared at night to play cards or dice in London's old East End to support his family, an unstable and dangerous existence that took its toll on his physical and mental health. 'Chick' was his gambling nickname. A shadowy figure in her... more...

  • Collected Poemsby David Constantine

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 14.51

    David Constantine is one the finest poets writing in English. His poetry stands outside the current literary climate, and like the work of the European poets who have nourished him, it is informed by a profoundly humane vision of the world. Its mood is often one of unease, elegiac or comically edged, barbed with pain or tinged with pleasure. His poems... more...

  • Crossing the Snowlineby Pauline Stainer

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 11.59

    Pauline Stainer is a poet 'working at the margins of the sacred', conveying sensations 'with an economy of means that is breathtaking? her poems are not merely artefacts, they have an organic life of their own' (John Burnside). Crossing the Snowline charts her return to life after numbing grief. These luminous poems are a testament of recovery, renewal... more...

  • Strayby Amanda Dalton

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 10.99

    Stray is a book about strays human and animal and about straying. It's about the lost and being lost, searching for home, and it's about the extraordinary places we sometimes discover when we're off the beaten track, deliberately or accidentally off-course. It's sometimes a noun and it's sometimes a verb almost a command. As Allan's mind strays and... more...

  • The Touch of Timeby Stewart Conn

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.99

    The Touch of Time is a comprehensive retrospective of the work of one of Scotland's leading poets drawing on ten previous books published over five decades. The new work here pursues the themes of his earlier Bloodaxe collections Stolen Light: Selected Poems (1999), Ghosts at Cockcrow (2005) and The Breakfast Room (2010). With what Professor Carla... more...

  • Finding a Leg to Stand Onby Connie Bensley

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.05

    Connie Bensley's poems are sharply satirical, often poking fun at social pretence and suburban pretension. They present a comedy of manners in which mismatched characters are bounced between love, death and disappointment. Hers is a seemingly small world but one which spans a whole universe of everyday life. Finding a Leg to Stand On is a retrospective... more...

  • Guffby Brendan Kennelly

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.05

    Brendan Kennelly's Guff is both mouthpiece and mouthed off, Devil's advocate and self critic, everyman and every writer consumed by self-doubt and self-questioning. The book of Guff is about words writing the man. Words drive him into the cave of himself where he questions everything including words that seem to constitute answers and answers that... more...

  • Deep Fieldby Philip Gross

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 11.59

    In his nineties Philip Gross's father, a wartime refugee, began to lose his several languages, first to deafness, then profound aphasia. Deeply thought as well as deeply felt, these poems reach into that gulf to find him -through recovery of histories both spoken and unspoken as well as an excavation of the spoken word itself. Readers who admired Philip... more...

  • Prettyby Ahren Warner

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 11.99

    Ahren Warner's second collection of poems opens with the sequence Lut&èce, te amo: a raw paean to the Paris it inhabits that flits between past and present and offers both adoration and horror in equal measure. Elsewhere, London 'licks and laps'; an anonymous man 'works his bones with a micro-plane' and translations of Baudelaire and Koj&ève rub shoulders... more...

  • Waiting for Bluebeardby Helen Ivory

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 11.99

    Waiting for Bluebeard tries to understand how a girl could grow up to be the woman living in Bluebeard's house. The story begins with a part-remembered, part-imagined childhood, where seances are held, and a father drowns in oil beneath the skeleton of his car. When her childhood home coughs up birds in the parlour, the girl enters Bluebeard's house... more...
