Tony Curtis

folk

Tony Curtis's new collection grows out of his fascination with the everyday, the quirky, the downright extraordinary. These are poems wrapped up in love and death, friendship
and memory, madness and music - with folk at the heart of every one of them. He has a wonderful ability to express great depth of feeling with deceptive simplicity.

Claiming Kindred

D. M. Black

Claiming Kindred

Scottish poet D. M. Black's first full collection since his Collected Poems 1964-87 of nearly twenty years ago. He published widely in the 1960s and 1970s, including a volume in the first Penguin Modern Poets series (with Peter Redgrove and D. M. Thomas). Stylistically wide-ranging, this collection is, by turns, moving, direct and idiosyncratic.

The Autumn Myth

Joel Lane

The Autumn Myth

Before the Invention of Paradise

Ludwig Steinherr

Before the Invention of Paradise

Ludwig Steinherr is one of the most compelling new voices to have emerged in Germany since the late 1980s and this selection - the first to appear in English - from his 10 poetry collections published between 1985 and 2005 reflects the breadth and depth of his writing, ranging from its post-Celanian darkness to its insistence on light.

The Secret History

Michael Hulse

The Secret History

Hulse's first full collection from Arc is a quest for the meaning of home. These are meditations on the parents and childhood God he has lost, the national legacies of England and Germany he was born into, and the discovery of home through love - an eloquent testimony to Hulse's technical virtuosity which shows a poet at the height of his powers.

The Scent of Your Shadow

Kristiina Ehin

The Scent of Your Shadow

Rooted in an ancient folk song tradition, Kristiina Ehin's poetry is both universal and deeply personal; her language is direct and simple, yet she expresses herself so vividly that her joys and sorrows become the reader's own. These poems, beautifully translated by Ilmar Lehtpere and selected from her most recent collection, were written over 2 years, beginning shortly before the birth of her son.

Shape of Time

Doris Kareva

Shape of Time

Doris Kareva is Estonia's leading female poet, and her work has been translated into over 20 languages. Her eleventh collection, Shape of Time, is more restrained in style than her earlier works, but its themes are the same - love and its great enemies, death and time - and the poems retain the romantic bravado that makes her work so compelling.
