The Street of Clocks

Thomas Lux

The Street of Clocks

The poems in this collection are lyrical monologues, urgently delivered by a narrator who both loves the world and has intense quarrels with it. Often set against a vivid landscape - the rural America of Lux's childhood and unidentified places south of the border - these poems speak from rivers and swamps, deserts and lawns, jungles and the depths of the sea.

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.

Astronaut

Brian Henry

Astronaut

Astronaut abounds with an unflagging energy, an exuberance of language and a humour that is by turns savage and deadpan, all of which leave the reader encountering Brian Henry's poems for the first time gasping for air. But so compelling is his cleverness with words and exploitation of the poetic form that the reader will be only too happy to take the plunge again. Already a rising star in his native US, Brian Henry will undoubtedly make his mark in the UK with this, his first published full-length collection.
