              alphabet (EPUB ebook)

              By Christensen, Inger

              Inger Christensen (1935-2009) was both a virtuoso and a paradox. Her fiction, drama, essays and children's books won her wide acclaim in Denmark and other European countries, but it is her poetry - spanning a forty-year period - that best reveals her versatility and depth. Her po...etry reflects a complex philosophical background, yet her most complex poetic works have enjoyed wide public popularity. Many of her poems have a visionary quality, yet she is a paradoxically down-to-earth visionary, focusing on the simple stuff of everyday life and in it discovering the metaphysical as if by chance. In Alphabet, Christensen creates a framework of psalm-like forms that unfold like expanding universes, crystallising into words both the beauty and the potential for destruction that permeate our world and our times.

              Stone Milk (EPUB ebook)

              By Stevenson, Anne

              Contains poems which address the way the written word preserves yet distorts the lives depending on it for fame or survival. Here, the author rewrites the myth as an 'entertainment' to be set to music - her own original take on how ancient, classical stories are reinterpreted by ...societies that inherit and retell them.

              Glad of These Times (EPUB ebook)

              By Dunmore, Helen

              Explores the fleetingness of life, its sweetness and intensity, the short time we have on earth and the pleasures of the earth, and death as the frame which sharpens everything and gives it shape. This work brings together poems of lyricism, feeling and artistry.

              The Egg of Zero
               

              The Egg of Zero (EPUB ebook)

              By Gross, Philip

              The zero at the heart of these poems is not nothing - not simply absence, forgetting or loss, though there are moving elegies among them. This is a not-quite-definable zero that gives surprising edge to life and language round it.

              By Szirtes, George

              Almana
               

              Almana (EPUB ebook)

              By Hadfield, Jen

              Almana: a mythic scrapbook, bag of cats, a one-man band. Almana is concerned with lists, rules and archetypes and what they don't account for. It takes as its subjects the Tarot, the lore of Full Moons, weather myths and travellers' tales. The central sequence 'Lorelei's Lore' is... a road movie in poems, set in the north of Scotland: Ultima Thule, hijacked by elusive sirens and Harrier jets. There's the ruthless Lorelei, gorgeous Ghosty who's given up on everything except the Road, and Skerryman, patron saint of bad weather and absence-makes-the-heart-grow-fonder. It's obsessed with yearning, like the two seas separated by the tip of Shetland 'metres apart / and desperate for each other.' Lorelei's Lore wonders 'what's beautiful?' (tarmac? sheep carcasses? sunburn?) and 'where's your native home?' 'A quick mind abroad alone in the ever-changing natural landscape. The language country-rooted, specific, of clear observation: a sophisticated, refreshing country brew. There are many memorable images in the described coquettish dance of nature's primal forces. This is an excellent collection -Jen Had? 'A zestful poet of the road, a beat poet of the upper latitudes, Jen Hadfield conjures poems and prose-poems of great spirit and imaginative daring from the northern landscapes. Lively, youthful and full of the joy of language, Almana is the most refreshing debut for ages' -Kathleen Jamie.
