Memorial to the Future

Volker von Törne

Memorial to the Future

This selection from von Törne's collected poems is particularly significant in that it is a powerful and moving articulation of the psychological burden still carried by countless people today whose voices are not often heard, a burden which von Törne's powerful, poignant and sometimes angry poetry helps us all the better to understand.

Window-cleaner Sees Paintings

Menno Wigman

Window-cleaner Sees Paintings

The master of pulsing, post-modern poetic rhythms, Menno Wigman's reputation is assured as one of the Netherlands' leading poets. And as perhaps his country's most exciting poet in terms of form: "a craftsman who knows what he wants" in the words of poet Alfred Schaffer. Wigman's second collection won him the Netherlands' coveted Jan Campert prize.

Self-portrait with a Swarm of Bees

Jan Wagner

Self-portrait with a Swarm of Bees

Self-Portrait with a Swarm of Bees, to be published in Arc's flagship translation series 'Visible Poets', combines the poet's unerring instinct for the surprising perspective on commonplace objects or events - plants, animals, landscapes - with a mischievous delight in the detail of the absurd, the precarious balance.

Peatlands

Pedro Serrano

Peatlands

These poems are wide ranging and passionate. Linguistically thrilling, they explore the world of snakes, swallows, valleys and skyscrapers, weariness and love. Reading through the eclectic subjects, provokes a sense of searching, a sense of chaos from which ultimately grows a unification of all things, so the dung beetle, scribe and marmaid are all part of one entity.

Nothing More

Krystyna Miłobędzka

Nothing More

These are poems rooted in the earth and body, beginning in a physical experience that expands into philosophical questioning. They are not polite, they do not hide their imperfections. They reveal an immediacy of expression.

& Silk & Love & Flame

Birhan Keskin

& Silk & Love & Flame

Birhan Keskin's poetry is finely-honed and minimal and at the same time, powerfully visual, evocative and exact. Meaning and music overlap, lines dissolve, restart and repeat.

Days Full of Caves & Tigers

Fabio Pusterla

Days Full of Caves & Tigers

This selection is drawn from six collections which span Pusterla's poetic career from 1985 to 2011. Pusterla's themes are many and varied, and there is a spareness and austerity about his poetry - which one feels is more 'Alpine' than Swiss - born of the age-old struggle with a harsh natural environment.

As I Said

Lev Loseff

As I Said

These poems are written from across the poet's life, contemplating his native land of Russia from both a literal and a figurative distance, while at the same time casting a sometimes jaundiced eye on the alien culture of America in which he spent the final years of his life. Loseff's poetry excels in complex imagery, rich literary allusion, and is abundant in formal experiment. Whether absorbed by the world of literature (particularly his fellow poets) or relating real-life experiences, Loseff conjures up a restless and frequently disturbing universe.
