Subhadassi

peeled

Subhadassi is a practising Buddhist and much of his poetry is imbued with the texture of Buddhism although the poet rarely confronts it head on. There is a compassion, honesty, humour, tenderness and sensuousness about these poems which makes them both eminently readable and strikingly memorable.

Fever Tree

Jackie Wills

Fever Tree

"Jackie Wills travels through landscapes of place, memory and imagination with a luminous clarity. Many of her poems are rooted in an ordinary, domestic world of family; others take us on journeys - from South Africa to the Sierra Nevada, via Shoreham Airport Café. All are voyages of discover, mapped through her precise observation and vividly sensual images. She manages beautifully the conjuring trick of writing poems that begin with simple moment, observation or place, but that spin off, "tracking soundwaves through space" to become lyrical and humane meditations on the possibilities of life, love and death." Amanda Dalton

Sudden Collapses in Public Places

Julia Darling

Sudden Collapses in Public Places

Anyone who has ever spent any time in a hospital or in a hospital waiting room will love these poems; anyone who has ever been to the doctor or felt ill or had to fill in a form will love these poems. That covers everyone. Here are poems about a difficult, scary subject, cancer, that circle around it lightly, on light dancing feet, and every so often whack you on the head. Oddly enough, Sudden Collapses is compulsively readable...

The Museum of Light

Rupert Loydell

The Museum of Light

The Museum of Light is a strong and unusual collection, in which the five discreet parts of 'Background Noise' - the uncompromising sequence that forms the backbone of this book - are interspersed by a tapestry of contrasting poems, some ironic, some light-hearted, some delicately lyrical.

The reader embarks on a journey that is both arduous and revealing, a journey from an indeterminate starting point to an indeterminate destination by way of a rich collage of ideas, images, voices and landscapes that are at once familiar and unrecognized.
