The first edition of W. B. Yeats's The Tower appeared in bookstores in London on Valentine's Day, 1928. His English publisher printed just 2,000 copies of this slender volume of twenty-one poems, priced at six shillings.

In Wendell Berry?s upcoming The New Collected Poems , the poet revisits for the first time his immensely popular Collected Poems , which The New York Times Book Review described as ?a straight-forward search for a life connected to the soil, for marriage as a sacrament and family life? that ?affirms a style that is resonant with the authentic,?... more...

The Scottish poet Robert Burns has been idolised and eulogised. He has been sainted, painted, tarted up and toasted. He is famous as the author of ?Auld Lang Syne?, and he has long since become the patron saint of the heart-sore and the hung-over. But what about the poems? Beneath the cult of Burns? Nights and patriotic yawps, there is the work itself,... more...

During his short life Burns wrote a great deal of poetry to or about women. Some were written as love poems or songs, intended to sway the heart of whoever had caught his eye, others in honour of a more casual acquaintance whose beauty or talents had impressed him in some way. Others were composed simply as a form of thank you letter for gifts or... more...

The poems in Tara Bergin?s accomplished debut collection combine sensuous, supple lyricism with the unsettling familiarity of folklore, fairytale and dream. They are inhabited by characters who seem at first widely different from one another, yet share nervous energy, a troubled state of mind: ‘I am unwell, little crow, / I am unwell and far from... more...

Playful in earnest, Caroline Bird in her fourth book of poems turns familiar stories on their heads. Bird?s protagonists declaim Chekhov in supermarkets, purchase mail-order tears, sing love-songs to hat-stands. Her characters and voices are at once savvy and vulnerable; underlying the exuberance is empathy with those who have lost themselves somewhere... more...

Published in 1919 when Lewis was only twenty, these early poems give an insight into the author's youthful agnosticism. The poems are written in various metrical forms, but are unified by a central idea, expressing his conviction that nature was malevolent and beauty the only true spirituality. Preface by Walter Hooper. more...

Beloved for his fanciful and engrossing children?s literature, controversial for his enthusiasm for British imperialism, Rudyard Kipling remains one of the most widely read writers of Victorian and modern English literature. In addition to writing more than two dozen works of fiction, including Kim and The Jungle Book , Kipling was a prolific poet,... more...

Seamus Heaney's Nobel Lecture is a powerful defense of poetry as "the ship and the anchor" of our spirit within an ocean of violent, divisive politics and "world-sorrow." Beginning with the "creaturely existence" of his childhood in a thatched farmstead in rural County Derr, Heaney traces his path in "the wideness of language." It is a way forged... more...
- Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2014; US$ 14.99
Seamus Heaney's new collection starts "In an age of bare hands and cast iron" and ends as "The automatic lock / clunks shut" in the eerie new conditions of a menaced twenty-first century. In their haunted, almost visionary clarity, the poems assay the weight and worth of what has been held in the hand and in the memory. Images out of a childhood... more...
