Cold Spring in Winter

Valérie Rouzeau

Cold Spring in Winter

These poems, a lament for the poet's dead father in the stammered cadences of an adult and the child she used to be, is strange and compelling, causing a stir when it was first published in 1999. Once familiar with Rouzeau's mixture of baby-talk, slang, puns and coinages, the reader will find this book utterly compelling.

Andrew Johnston is one of New Zealand's leading poets.

Far from Sodom

Inna Lisnianskaya

Far from Sodom

Lisnianskaya is a poet of instinct — lyrical, intense, defiant, tragic — in whose poetry time, death and the need for love are key themes. In Far from Sodom, which spans her poetic output from 1967 to 2003, she writes with tender insight into love and loss in old age, and in particular about her late husband, the celebrated poet Semyon Lipkin.

Words Have Frozen Over

Claude de Burine

Spectrum-Shift

Isobel Thrilling

Spectrum-Shift

Isobel Thrilling's work is characterised by free verse, an extreme economy of language and piercing moments of insight. There are poems here which deal uncompromisingly with illness, loss and family relationships. Others set the human in a wider evolutionary context. Some are the expression of the sheer joy of living. Whatever the subject, the dedication and craftsmanship of a highly individual artist are always very much to the fore.
