Making landfall among the inhabitants of a gritty metropolis, these poems transport the reader from the white coast of New Zealand, the Land of the Long White Cloud, to the shores of another country and another time.

Whimsical and tender, this poetry collection examines the commonplace and the quirky for resonance, contemplation, and verve. From an out-of-season daffodil and a chipped Limoges plate to a lipstick stain on a poem and a bee being released, it illuminates the poetry in the everyday by focusing on a single image and expanding to the cusp of something... more...

The Mining Road, Leanne O'Sullivan?s third poetry collection, finds inspiration in the disused copper mines that haunt the rugged terrain around Allihies, near her home at Beara, in West Cork. Like remnants of a lost world, the mines? ruined towers, shafts, man-engines and dressing floors, evoke an elemental landscape in which men and women laboured... more...

The body is the 'bad machine' of George Szirtes' latest book of poems. The sudden death of his elderly father and of his younger friend, the poet Michael Murphy, remind him how machines – sources of energy and delight in their prime – go so easily wrong; and that change in the body is a signal for moving on. But language too is a body. Here, politics,... more...
