  • The Touch of Timeby Stewart Conn

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 18.99

    The Touch of Time is a comprehensive retrospective of the work of one of Scotland's leading poets drawing on ten previous books published over five decades. The new work here pursues the themes of his earlier Bloodaxe collections Stolen Light: Selected Poems (1999), Ghosts at Cockcrow (2005) and The Breakfast Room (2010). With what Professor Carla... more...

  • Finding a Leg to Stand Onby Connie Bensley

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 16.99

    Connie Bensley's poems are sharply satirical, often poking fun at social pretence and suburban pretension. They present a comedy of manners in which mismatched characters are bounced between love, death and disappointment. Hers is a seemingly small world but one which spans a whole universe of everyday life. Finding a Leg to Stand On is a retrospective... more...

  • Guffby Brendan Kennelly

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 15.99

    Brendan Kennelly's Guff is both mouthpiece and mouthed off, Devil's advocate and self critic, everyman and every writer consumed by self-doubt and self-questioning. The book of Guff is about words writing the man. Words drive him into the cave of himself where he questions everything including words that seem to constitute answers and answers that... more...

  • Deep Fieldby Philip Gross

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 14.99

    In his nineties Philip Gross's father, a wartime refugee, began to lose his several languages, first to deafness, then profound aphasia. Deeply thought as well as deeply felt, these poems reach into that gulf to find him -through recovery of histories both spoken and unspoken as well as an excavation of the spoken word itself. Readers who admired Philip... more...

  • Tiger Facing the Mistby Pauline Stainer

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 14.99

    Pauline Stainer is a poet 'working at the margins of the sacred', conveying sensations 'with an economy of means that is breathtaking… her poems are not merely artefacts, they have an organic life of their own' (John Burnside). As in all her books, the luminous poems of her eighth collection Tiger Facing the Mist are minimal but highly charged -with... more...

  • Ireland Is Changing Motherby Rita Ann Higgins

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 14.99

    Ireland Is Changing Mother is the latest collection from Rita Ann Higgins: provocative and heart-warming poems of high jinx, jittery grief and telling social comment by a gutsy, anarchic chronicler of the lives of the Irish dispossessed, before as well as since the demise of the Celtic tiger. 'It shouldn't be unusual to hear a smart, sassy, unabashed,... more...

  • Nine Fathom Deepby David Constantine

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 14.99

    Like the work of the European poets who have nourished him, David Constantine's poetry is informed by a profoundly humane vision of the world. In his title-poem -which illuminates the themes of the whole book -the lovers are a utopian answering back against the curse (following a crime against Nature) that is carried by the ship passing above them.... more...

  • The Winter Sleep of Captain Lemassby Harry Clifton

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 15.99

    At once a reckoning with a lost political legacy, a meditation on love, marriage and middle age, and a reaching back into foreign ancestry, The Winter Sleep of Captain Lemass is Harry Clifton's fullest and most ambitious attempt so far to bring together, in a single book, the discordant elements of an evolving Ireland, as it discovers itself, through... more...

  • Day Releaseby Aidan Rooney-Cespedes

    The Gallery Press 2014; US$ 9.49

    Aidan Rooney-Cespedes' first collection reveals an unusual maturity and singular scope. His widely published, prize-winning poems range from the rich imaginings of "Retro Creation" through various locales -- from County Monaghan, where he was born and raised, Paris and the literary past, to North America, where he now lives. As it blends the colloquial... more...

  • Chosen Lightsby John Montague et al

    The Gallery Press 2014; US$ 12.49

    First published on the occasion of John Montague's 80th birthday, this revised edition of Chosen Lights, in which more than thirty fellow poets select one of his poems and present an essay outlining its claims on their affection and admiration, endures as a unique perspective on a master's work and as a remarkable sampler of each stage of his career.... more...
