The Secret History

Michael Hulse

The Secret History

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

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.
