- Carcanet 2013; US$ 14.51
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...

‘I dislike the idea of being a religious poet. I would prefer to be a poet for whom religious things mattered intensely.? In the poems collected in this book, Rowan Williams writes of many things. He visits the Holy Land, commemorates the deaths of parents and close friends, explores elements of ancient Celtic culture; poems are inspired by works... more...
- Hodder & Stoughton 2014; US$ 6.99
A compilation of poetry written by George Mackay Brown over a 30-year period, which represents his favourite work. These poems reflect the richness of the Orkney Island community where he lives, a community permeated with its past and still close to the natural world. more...

Following in the successful nature-writing style of Robert MacFarlane and Gillian Clarke, Distance and Memory is a book about remoteness: a memoir of places observed in solitude, of the texture of life through the quiet course of the seasons in the far north of Scotland. It is a book grounded in the singularity of one place?a house in northern Aberdeenshire?and... more...

The poems in Dublin-born poet and translator Tara Bergin?s debut collection combine sensuous lyricism with the unsettling familiarity of folklore, fairy tale, and dream.

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...

Silence Fell marks the American debut of an extraordinary poet from the remote north of England. The poems are set on a sheep farm in the northern mountains and tell the story -- in the form of a modern shepherd?s calendar -- of Josephine Dickinson?s marriage to a Cumbrian sheep farmer, a man more than twice her age, and their life together, until... more...

Many of the poems in Sean O'Brien's new collection take their emotional tenor and imaginative cue from his acclaimed translation of Dante's Inferno, and occupy a dark, flooded, subterranean world, as dramatically compelling as it is disquieting. Circumstances have compelled O'Brien to return repeatedly to the elegiac form, and The Drowned Book contains... more...
