  • The Poems of Rowan Williamsby Rowan Williams

    Carcanet 2014; US$ 14.51

    ‘I dislike the idea of being a religious poet. I would prefer to be a poet for whom religious things mattered intensely.?

  • Shelley: Poemsby Percy Bysshe Shelley

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2014; US$ 14.95

    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822) was perhaps the most intellectually adventurous of the great Romantic poets.  A classicist, a headlong visionary, a social radical, and a poet of serene artistry with a lyric touch second to none, Shelley personified the richly various?and contradictory?energies of his time. This compact yet comprehensive collection... more...

  • Wordsworth: Poemsby William Wordsworth

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2014; US$ 14.95

Here, collected in this volume, are Wordsworth?s finest works, some of the most beautiful poems ever written: from the... more...

  • Marvell: Poemsby Andrew Marvell

  • Byron: Poemsby Lord G. Gordon Byron

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2014; US$ 13.50

    To the nineteenth-century reader, George Gordon, Lord Byron (1788-1824), was the archetype of the Romantic literary hero, a figure admired and emulated as much for the revolutionary panache with which he lived his life as the brio and allure of his verse. Our century has seen him more clearly as a poet whose intellectual toughness, satiric gifts, and... more...

  • Coleridge: Poemsby Samuel Taylor Coleridge

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2014; US$ 14.95

    Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834) was the master impresario of English Romanticism -- an enormously erudite and tireless critic, lecturer, and polemicist who almost single-handedly created the intellectual climate in which the Romantic movement was received and understood. He was also, in poems such as 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner,' 'Christabel,'... more...

  • New Selected Poemsby P.J. Kavanagh; Derek Mahon

    Carcanet 2014; US$ 18.89

    In his foreword to this book, Derek Mahon notes that P.J. Kavanagh?s poems ‘elude the obvious categories. He has never been one of a “school??. A poet of rural England, yet of Irish ancestry, Kavanagh ‘has always stood slightly apart?. He championed the poems of Ivor Gurney and shares with Gurney not only a personal landscape (that of Gloucestershire)... more...
