The long breath of Barbara Chase-Riboud's poems recalls poets of the antique world we know only from fragments, like Sappho.

The 72 poems in Kim Kardashian's Marriage mark out equally sharpened lines of public and private engagement. Kim Kardashian's 2011 marriage lasted for 72 days, and was seen by some as illustrative of celebrity life as a performance, as spectacle. Whatever the truth of this (and Kardashian's own statements refute it), Sam Riviere has used the furor... more...

Frances Leviston's first collection, Public Dream , was one of the most acclaimed debuts of recent years, and praised for combining 'technical mastery with a lucidity that verges on the hypnotic' ( The Independent ).
