Andrew Sant

The Unmapped Page: Selected Poems

The poems selected for this book are the distillation of the work of a poet who began to receive significant attention in Australia during the 1980s and whose reputation continues to grow.

The Ramazan Libation

Alamgir Hashmi

The Ramazan Libation

Lyrical, compassionate and personal on the one hand, ironical, political and wryly humorous on the other, these poems take us to America and Europe as well as through the rich, vibrant countryside and cities of Pakistan.

This is poetry which looks both to the East and the West and in so doing, establishes its unique position in English-language poetry - unusual, beautiful and enduring.

Brian Henry

Graft

In his citation for the 2001 George Bogin Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America, which Brian Henry won with this collection, Donald Revell writes: "I honor and admire these poems for their groundwork understanding.

The Street of Clocks

Thomas Lux

The Street of Clocks

The poems in this collection are lyrical monologues, urgently delivered by a narrator who both loves the world and has intense quarrels with it. Often set against a vivid landscape - the rural America of Lux's childhood and unidentified places south of the border - these poems speak from rivers and swamps, deserts and lawns, jungles and the depths of the sea.
