  • Self-Portrait in the Darkby Colette Bryce

  • A Night Out with Robert Burnsby Robert Burns

    Canongate Books 2008; US$ 12.46

    The Scottish poet Robert Burns has been idolised and eulogised. He has been sainted, painted, tarted up and toasted.

Nights and patriotic yawps, there is the work itself,... more...

    Carcanet 2013; US$ 7.26

    The poems in Tara Bergin's accomplished debut collection combine sensuous, supple lyricism with the unsettling familiarity of folklore, fairytale and dream.

  • The Hat-Stand Unionby Caroline Bird

    Carcanet 2013; US$ 7.26

    Playful in earnest, Caroline Bird in her fourth book of poems turns familiar stories on their heads.

Her characters and voices are at once savvy and vulnerable; underlying the exuberance is empathy with those who have lost themselves somewhere... more...
