  • Stone Milkby Anne Stevenson

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 14.99

    The poems of Stone Milk address the way the written word preserves yet distorts the lives depending on it for fame or survival.

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 15.99

    Hannah Lowe's first book of poems takes you on a journey round her father, a Chinese-black Jamaican migrant who disappeared at night to play cards or dice in London's old East End to support his family, an unstable and dangerous existence that took its toll on his physical and mental health. 'Chick' was his gambling nickname. A shadowy figure in her... more...

  • Collected Poemsby David Constantine

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 18.99

    David Constantine is one the finest poets writing in English. His poetry stands outside the current literary climate, and like the work of the European poets who have nourished him, it is informed by a profoundly humane vision of the world. Its mood is often one of unease, elegiac or comically edged, barbed with pain or tinged with pleasure. His poems... more...

  • Crossing the Snowlineby 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). Crossing the Snowline charts her return to life after numbing grief. These luminous poems are a testament of recovery, renewal... more...

  • Strayby Amanda Dalton

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 14.99

    Stray is a book about strays -human and animal -and about straying. It's about the lost and being lost, searching for home, and it's about the extraordinary places we sometimes discover when we're off the beaten track, deliberately or accidentally off-course. It's sometimes a noun and it's sometimes a verb -almost a command. As Allan's mind strays... more...

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...

    The Gallery Press 2014; US$ 18.99

    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...

    In Alan Lightman's new book, a verse narrative, we meet a man who has lost his faith in all things following a mysterious personal tragedy.
