Places You Leave

James Byrne

Places You Leave

Beginning inside the largest refugee camp in the world (Cox’s Bazar) and ending up with Lorca in Granada, Places You Leave explores questions of travel, place / displacement, self / otherness, race, feminism, national and global politics. Through poems, poetic sequences and the lyric essay, Byrne considers a ‘poethics’ of place and speaks back to the complex nature of human experience. In his most hybrid work to date, including original collages from seven different countries, Byrne advocates for activist but peaceful ways in which language might challenge existing social structures and the dynamics of power.

Places you Leave is relentlessly energetic and politically insistent without ever being pedantic, these are knife-sharp glimpses of the world. The specificity of the details – spindling out over and again – never releases us. We’re yanked along image by image, observation by observation. And, suddenly, it occurs that we’re the angel going backwards with the world collapsing in our wake.

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

Small Stories of Devotion

Dinah Hawken

Small Stories of Devotion

Dinah Hawken won the 1987 Commonwealth Poetry Prize with her first book.

In this stunning and unforgettably elegiac book, female sensuality and spirituality are celebrated, standing together rather than split the way Christian culture has encouraged. It is a journey of discovery using very precise language, myths and contemporary writing to question our spiritual condition.
