  • The Abandoned Settlementsby James Sheard

    Random House 2017; US$ 14.09

    The poems in James Sheard?s remarkable third book are about love and leaving, of how the rift of departure brings on a kind of haunting ? of the people involved and the places where they lived ? an emotional trace of departed lives and loves. This is what these poems are: the scars of separation, the spoors of desire. Sheard writes powerfully about... more...

  • On Earth and in Hellby Thomas Bernhard; Peter Waugh

    Three Rooms Press 2015; US$ 9.99

    The first English translation of the earliest poetry of brilliant and disruptive Austrian writer Thomas Bernhard, widely considered one of the most innovative and original authors of the twentieth century and often associated with fellow mavericks Beckett, Kafka and Dostoevsky.

  • Ilse Aichingers Lyrikby Hannah Markus

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 140.00

    Ilse Aichinger?s legacy in the German Literary Archive in Marbach has yielded around a hundred unpublished poems and sketches for poems along with many preliminary drafts. The study places them in relation to the published poems. Examinations of Aichinger?s prose poems, characteristic stylistic features and lines of development, her work in text,... more...

  • Rakeby Matthew Caley

    Bloodaxe Books 2016; US$ 13.05

    Throughout Rake, Matthew Caley?s fifth collection, it can appear as if we are leafing through the oblique diary of an immortal time-travelling rake, one who is seeking his ?one true beloved? through an heroic tally of amorous encounters, desperately trying to get beyond appetite; or possibly a number of parallel immortal time-travelling rakes; or maybe... more...

  • This changes thingsby Claire Askew

    Bloodaxe Books 2016; US$ 13.05

    This changes things is Claire Askew?s first full collection, coming after years of work in Scotland?s flourishing poetry and spoken word scene. Her poems focus on the lives and experiences of women - particularly the socially or economically marginalised - at pains both to empathise and to recognise the limits of this empathy. They embody a need to... more...

  • The Poetry of Alfred Lichensteinby Alfred Lichenstein

    Copyright Group 2015; US$ 2.49

    Alfred Lichtenstein was born on 23rd August 1889 in Berlin. He was well educated and graduated with a law degree. However, it appears that law held little appeal but writing short stories and poems did. His early style was to lampoon people and he quickly built a reputation in Berlin as an expressionist writer. He broadened his appeal and became... more...

  • Tempest of Starsby Jean Cocteau; Jeremy Reed; David Austen

    Enitharmon Press 1997; US$ 9.99

    Film-maker, novelist, artist, playwright, entrepreneur, Jean Cocteau (1889-1963) regarded himself above all as a poet. No matter how diverse or prolific his creativity, he saw poetry as central to his vision of all the arts. And it was as a poet that he began his career, publishing Le Cap de Bonne-Espérance in 1919, and it was in this vocation that... more...

  • In Praise of Defeatby Abdellatif Laabi; Donald Nicholson-Smith

    Steerforth Press 2016; US$ 18.00

    One of the central writers and thinkers in contemporary Maghreb letters and banned by the Moroccan government, Abdellatif Laabi's poetry is increasingly influential on the international scene and spans six decades of political and literary change, innovation, and struggle. Including a wide range of work, from piercing domestic love poetry to a fierce... more...

  • Berlin-Hamletby SzilÁRd JÓZsef BorbÉLy; Ottilie Mulzet

    New York Review Books 2016; US$ 12.95

    Berlin-Hamlet evokes a stroll through one of the phantasmagoric shopping arcades described in Walter Benjamin?s Passagen-Werk ?but instead of the delirious image fragments of nineteenth-century European culture, we pass by disembodied scraps of written text, remnants as ghostly as their authors: primarily Franz Kafka but also Benjamin himself... more...
