"When entering a Tomaz Salamun poem don't reach for the handrail of narrative or grope for the light-switch of 'meaning'" Simon Armitage

Far from Sodom

Inna Lisnianskaya

Scent of the Unseen

Mila Haugová

Scent of the Unseen

"In a time when western culture generates most of its symbols through the distortions of television, Mila Haugová retains the remarkable ability to sing of the symbolic heights and depths of experience. Bold, iconic and revelatory, these translations do great services to the poems of a major Central European writer." Andy Brown

Camp Notebook

Miklós Radnóti

Camp Notebook

The fame of this notebook (the pages of which are reproduced at the beginning of this volume) does not only rest on the poignancy of its story; Camp Notebook is a masterpiece in its own right, a crucial work of European verse. It is one of the greatest pieces of literature to emerge from the Holocaust, and probably the finest volume of poetry born from the horror of the Second World War.

At the Skin Resort

James Sutherland-Smith

At the Skin Resort

James Sutherland-Smith's first full collection of poetry for almost twenty years draws on his perceptions of Eastern Europe in the years following the collapse of communism. In At the Skin Resort, he registers his own relationship with a world which has emerged not so much from pure nightmare, but from a fitful sleep where fearful dreams were succeeded by moments of clarity or utter blankness. In the cold light of day, memory of those past times is difficult to recapture with any sense of certainty.

Tomaž Šalamun

Homage to Hat & Uncle Guido & Eliot
