The Unmapped Page: Selected Poems

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. Described variously by critics as "an important, innovative poet" with "a penetrating eye for the hidden geometries of meaning", Sant reveals himself in this volume as a vibrant, witty and sensuous writer with a gift for narrative exploration and an eye for intrinsic and off-beat detail.

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.

Graft

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. Here, oppression is shown forth as a condition of language, a violence of syntax. And here, in resistance to oppression, extraordinariness lifts a beautiful, if harried, affirming sound.

Selected Poems

Michael S. Harper

Selected Poems

Concerned with the often painful historical legacies of family and race, Harper re-visits personal and black history in these poems, in which we not only hear the driving syncopations and heady improvisations of Coltrane, Charlie Parker and Miles Davis but also the cadences of those towering literary figures - among them Yeats and Keats - that have so much influenced him.

Sarah Day

New and Selected Poems

Painting the Bamboo Tree

Gail Dendy

Painting the Bamboo Tree

In her mesmerising first collection, Gail Dendy unleashes a panoply of sound, smells, colours, rhythms from her native South Africa in a sequence of poems which, though dealing with the familiar, the intimate and the every-day, have a haunting strangeness.

...her poems have a delicate beauty. Her strength is her finesse and throughout her book the haunting understatement is a delight.
