  • The Egg of Zeroby Philip Gross

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 10.14

    The zero at the heart of these poems is not nothing – not simply absence, forgetting or loss, though there are moving elegies among them. This is a not-quite-definable O that gives surprising edge to life and language round it. Direct, meditative, playful, hyper-alert, Philip Gross?s distinctively wide range of tones work together in a subtle, searching... more...

  • Laterby Philip Gross

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.05

    Challenging and tender, these poems are a rite of passage. Philip Gross's much praised previous collection, Deep Field, explored the loosening connections between the self and language in his refugee father's old age. This new book goes further, through the failing of the body, through the mind's weakening hold on the borderline between the present... more...

  • The Burning of the Books and other poemsby George Szirtes

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.05

    The title-poem of George Szirtes? The Burning of the Books and other poems is the core of this collection of narrative sequences by a writer who came to Britain as a child refugee after the Hungarian Uprising.

  • Life on Earthby Derek Mahon

    The Gallery Press 2014; US$ 10.94

    ‘Given a choice of worlds, here or beyond, I?d pick this one not once but many times . . .? — from ‘Homage to Goa? The publication of a new book of poems by Derek Mahon is a momentous occasion. Life on Earth collects, and adds to, work which has appeared recently in limited editions. It opens with celebrations of notable exemplars: Coleridge, Chekhov,... more...

  • Laughing Cultby Kevin McCaffrey

    Four Winds Press 2014; US$ 9.95

    Inspired by the spirit and approach of Bertolt Brecht's Manual of Piety , the poems of Laughing Cult often employ the structures of ballads, folksongs, and other traditional forms to create miniature sketches marked by romantic ambiguity, occultism, science fiction, and quirky angst. As cool in tone as a Lee Konitz solo and as lacking in affect... more...

  • The Red Listby Stephen Cushman

    LSU Press 2014; US$ 9.95

    "'Yes indeed, some days it helps to think of extinction,' writes Stephen Cushman in his joyride of a jeremiad, The Red List . Baring everything from his soul down to his cholesterol levels, this stargazer, Biblical exegete, and campus flaneur composes a twenty-first-century self-portrait in a funhouse mirror. 'Maybe, could it be, hopelessness is... more...

  • You Must Remember Thisby Michael Bazzett

    Milkweed Editions 2014; US$ 16.00

    A woozy logic dominates these poems: a heart can become a buzzing hive of bees, a rooster can trigger a series of bombs, a young man can embrace a city bus as his spirit animal. Yet Bazzett slices through his poems with a dangerous sense of humor. “Your humor is deft and cutting / my fingers off one by one,? as one poem puts it. Once dismembered,... more...

  • Verzückte Distanzenby Monika Rinck; Heinz Kattner

    zu Klampen 2013; US$ 5.67

    »Wenn die Dichterin Monika Rinck den Bewusstseinsraum des Poetischen öffnet, dann geht es meist um eine Neugruppierung unterschiedlichster Reflexions- und Assoziationskräfte, um die Integration disparatester Gedanken und Bilder in eine mobile Form ? In ihrer literarischen Arbeit verwickelt sie sich bewußt in ein Spannungsverhältnis von medientechnischen,... more...
