Usually delivers within 2 weeks.

Description

For two decades "New Poetries" has been a proving-ground for new poets in English from around the world. Here readers first encountered, in generous selections, work by, among others, Caroline Bird, Stephen Burt, Sophie Hannah, Emma Jones, Nicole Krauss, Patrick McGuinness, Kei Miller, David Morley, Sinead Morrissey, Togara Muzanenhamo, Matthew Welton and Jane Yeh. Published from Manchester, the anthologies overlook national borders, instead providing vistas across a worldscape. This fifth "New Poetries" anthology presents twenty-two new writers, organised in such a way as to highlight their variety, the 'irreducible plural' of poetry today. It includes work by poets ranging from their early twenties to their late sixties, and harking from Canada, England, Iran, New Zealand, the Philippines, Scotland, Singapore, South Africa, the United States and Wales. Their forms and themes are wonderfully various. What they have in common is intelligence, curiosity and a willingness to take risks. This book's surprises remain fresh, the writers promise major things.
