Twenty Poems

This bilingual (German / English) chapbook of 20 poems makes for an exciting introduction to Kathrin Schmidt’s work. Thanks to Sue Vickerman’s daring translations, we are able to appreciate Schmidt’s irrepressible poetic style as she ranges across the themes of gender, identity, the body, eroticism, her own personal history and language itself.

Beautiful Things

The Dutch poet, anthologist and translator Menno Wigman died in 2018 at just fifty-one, several years after being diagnosed with a rare heart condition likely caused by an allergic reaction suffered in his adolescence.

This memorial pamphlet is intended as a tribute to the poet and as a companion to Window-cleaner Sees Paintings, my selection of Wigman's poetry published by Arc in 2016.

Skald - Sword & Sea-Cloud

Skald - Sword & Sea-Cloud

The poet Ian Crockatt has published two superb translations of Viking poetry with Arc- Crimsoning the Eagle's Claw: the Viking Poems of Rognvaldr Kali Kolsson, Earl of Orkney and The Song Weigher: the Complete Poems of Egill Skallagrimsson, Tenth Century Viking & Skald - and in this chapbook he uses the same highly-wrought form developed by the Skalds (the professional poets employed by the kings and earls of the Viking courts of the 9th to 13th centuries) to tell a quasi-Viking tale set in the landscapes and seascapes once under Viking control - the West Coast of Scotland where he used to live, and the north-east corner of Scotland where he now lives.
