  • This is Yarrowby Tara Bergin

    Carcanet 2013; US$ 9.99

    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$ 9.99

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

    Mainstream Publishing 2013; US$ 21.14

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2011; US$ 3.99

  • The Outcastsby Edith Sitwell

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2011; US$ 3.99

    First published in London in 1962, this collection of Sitwell's later poetry contains "several pieces which show that the lyrical impulse of her early days was still alive to make new discoveries of great freshness and tenderness" - Dictionary of National Biography "Her mastery of the long line, the pause, of contrasting fullness... more...

  • The Bird-Catcherby Martin Armstrong

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2012; US$ 5.99

    This beautiful collection of poems tells tales of blossoming springs and fruitful summers; in Honey Harvest Armstrong depicts Spring with the overweight apple blossom nodding on their branches and the sweet honey filling our shelves, and in Spanish Vintage we are almost able to taste the plump purple grapes of August as we follow their journey through... more...
