Matthew Francis's latest collection celebrates the richness of nature and of our responses to it. The pleasures of summer are emblazoned in the colourful wings and evocative names of butterflies, while a nocturnal encounter with an earwig becomes a joyous incantation to the 'witchy-beetle, forkin-robin' of dialect. His love of history, embodied in his acclaimed Mandeville and The Mabinogi, gives rise to a sequence based on Robert Hooke's microscopic observations. There are tributes to the poets Basho, Dafydd ap Gwilym and W. S. Graham, to fireworks, apple varieties, and hot toddies. And, in a moving elegy for a friend killed in a parachute accident, Francis shows us a vertiginous vision of a world where even the dead 'sleep on the wing'.

Fifty Fifty: Carcanet's Jubilee in Letters
Each of Carcanet's fifty years is marked by an exchange of letters between an author and the editor. The aim is to reveal a half century's history of publishing and one small, ambitious press's contribution, the nature of editing, the author/editor relationship, the conflicts, friendships and vicissitudes that occur at the nexus between the work, its creator, publisher and readers. Beginning in 1969 with the answer to a request to become a subscriber to the Press for GBP2, the book traces the development of the press as well as individual author/editor relationships. It moves from Pin Farm in Oxfordshire to a house in Cheadle Hulme to an office in the Corn Exchange, central Manchester; from the struggle to survive as an independent to benevolent acquisition by Robert Gavron, the print magnate; surviving the Manchester bombing in 1996 and the vicissitudes of the book trade in lean years. At its heart is the personal relationship of author and editor/publisher, often beginning with contributions to PN Review. Poets are central, but fiction writers, translators, biographers and critics also contribute to the Carcanet ferment and firmament. Famous writers are not necessarily the best letter-writers, as editor Robyn Marsack discovered in trawling through the Carcanet Archive in the Rylands Library. The letters here are amusing, surprising, contentious, challenging. They were handwritten, typed, and now emailed -- the changing pattern is fascinating to see. This is a rare glimpse into the inner workings of a small, ambitious press. The book celebrates the writer's, editor's and reader's risks, passions and pleasures.

How to Be a Poet
The Roman poet Ovid's The Book of Love instructed women on the art of seduction and men in the art of romantic conquest. It is a classic sexist text on men, women, love, and sex. In her second book of erasures, JM Farkas takes on Ovid's Ars Amoratis, or The Book of Love. In her signature feminist, revisionist twist, Farkas speaks to emerging girl poets. How to Be a Poet is not only for writers, but for anyone who wants to create beauty in the world. In addition to the erasure, How to Be a Poet will include a cross-out style that leaves the original text visible. Illustrations throughout also enhance the text. avenge your mother. invent a girl with a reckless heart. free her in her tower. be a thief, snatch time, every time you write, set fire to your arrows of desire. be greedy, burn like a jealous star. hide the key by the strawberry trees behind your heart. turn with the earth and sing like a girl.

The Poetry of Compassion
Compassion, a middle-English derivation from the Latin compati (to suffer with), has in our confusing and tumultuous times become a major academic discipline. Professor Patrick Pietroni brings together his work as the director of the Darwin International Institute for the Study of Compassion and his love of poetry to outline how the concept of compassion can emerge as a force for good in our conflicted world. When examining compassion from a religious perspective, one finds that all of the major world religions and humanistic organizations find compassion among the highest human virtues, and that they describe this aspect of the human species in remarkably similar ways, which we now recognize throughout the world as the Golden Rule. This slender volume offers the reader a poetic entrance into or reintroduction to the recognition and practice of compassion on all levels: to humans, to the largest or smallest of the animal kingdom, and to our beloved Earth. The poets collected here include Warsan Shire, William Wordsworth, Mary Oliver, Stanley Cooper, and Maya Angelou, among others.

Sun of Consciousness
Soleil de la Conscience (Sun of Consciousness) was Martinican philosopher Edouard Glissant's first published work, and opened the Poetique (Poetics) strain of his oeuvre. This book-length essay, which is characterized by its exploratory, intimate character, announces Glissants concerns with creolisation (creolization), mondialite (worldliness, as against globalization), or opacite (opacity) and inscribes in this work a refusal of colonialism and of inverted exoticism. The sense of estrangement experienced by the author who arrives as a foreigner in a country to which he is bound by the first page of his passport is the author's principal preoccupation. By positioning himself as both different and same, Glissant opens a space for the writing of a(nother) history: that of the Caribbean.

A Collection of Relatable Thoughts
A Collection of Relatable Thoughts is dedicated to anyone who has ever felt stuck and is trying their best to not give up. The main topics include staying positive, comparisons, relationships, areas in our lives that we can develop, and finally, a hopeful future. These topics are explored by the author's own personal experiences which she's found to be relatable to other people through conversing with others and hearing their stories. The author also writes about the different thoughts she has had when suffering from emotions like anxiety, self-doubt and feeling torn for not understanding her purpose in life. This is an interactive book, one that a reader can keep editing and going back to. Each chapter has two activities: one is mindful colouring and the other is a suggestive activity. The mindful colouring activity is to encourage the reader to take a few moments of their time to destress and focus at being present in that moment. The suggestive activities are there to give you different activities to do when stress, self-doubt, or the feelings of disconnection arises. A Collection of Relatable Thoughts is not necessarily a self-help book and does not give the readers step-by-step instructions. Instead it tries to invoke awareness and persuades the reader to make their own decisions as to what changes they would like to make to improve their quality of life.

Robert Duncan: The Collected Early Poems and Plays
A landmark in the publication of twentieth-century American poetry, this first volume of the long-awaited collected poetry, non-critical prose, and plays of Robert Duncan gathers all of Duncan's books and magazine publications up to and including Letters: Poems 1953-1956. Deftly edited, it thoroughly documents the first phase of Duncan's distinguished life in writing, making it possible to trace the poet's development as he approaches the brilliant work of his middle period. This volume includes the celebrated works Medieval Scenes and The Venice Poem, all of Duncan's long unavailable major ventures into drama, his extensive imitations of Gertrude Stein, and the remarkable poems written in Majorca as responses to a series of collaged paste-ups by Duncan's life-long partner, the painter Jess. Books appear in chronological order of publication, with uncollected periodical and other publications arranged chronologically, following each book. The introduction includes a biographical commentary on Duncan's early life and works, and clears an initial path through the textual complexities of his early writing. Notes offer brief commentaries on each book and on many of the poems. The volume to follow, The Collected Later Poetry and Plays, will include The Opening of the Field (1960), Roots and Branches (1964), Bending the Bow (1968), Ground Work (1984), and Ground Work II (1987).

The Collected Poems of Philip Lamantia
The Collected Poems of Philip Lamantia represents the lifework of the most visionary poet of the American postwar generation. Philip Lamantia (1927-2005) played a major role in shaping the poetics of both the Beat and the Surrealist movements in the United States. First mentored by the San Francisco poet Kenneth Rexroth, the teenage Lamantia also came to the attention of the French Surrealist leader Andre Breton, who, after reading Lamantia's youthful work, hailed him as a voice that rises once in a hundred years. Later, Lamantia went on the road with Jack Kerouac and shared the stage with Allen Ginsberg at the famous Six Gallery reading in San Francisco, where Ginsburg first read Howl. Throughout his life, Lamantia sought to extend and renew the visionary tradition of Romanticism in a distinctly American vernacular, drawing on mystical lore and drug experience in the process. The Collected Poems gathers not only his published work but also an extensive selection of unpublished or uncollected work; the editors have also provided a biographical introduction.

Invitation to the Voyage: Selected Poems and Prose
Baudelaire is indeed the greatest exemplar in modern poetry in any language, said T. S. Eliot. We experience Baudelaire in myriad ways through his multifaceted writing. His sensuous poems--dreams of escape to an impossible, preferably tropical, elsewhere--draw us in with their descriptive and perceptual richness. There is also the bitter, compassionate, and desolate Baudelaire. Ultimately, Baudelaire's true genius might reside in his expressive force and in the tension between his passions and intellect. The latter is most evident in his control of rhetoric and poetic form, and--given the poems' density of language, thought, and feeling--his astonishing clarity. This new English rendition of Baudelaire by award-winning translator Beverley Bie Brahic includes poems from his celebrated volumes: Les Fleurs du mal, Les Epaves, Le Spleen de Paris, and Paradis artificiels. It also includes several of his prose poems, as well as an excerpt from his famous essay on wine and hashish. The poems in verse have Baudelaire's French originals on facing pages; the prose poems, unaccompanied by their originals, are printed near the poems in verse with which they resonate. Complete with the translator's illuminating introduction and notes, this beautifully crafted volume is an important addition to Baudelaire's work in English translation.

Etudes
Exploring longing, lust for life, ageing, mortality, grief, and flowers in her inimitable late style, etudes is a diary-like sequence of poems by one of the greatest living Austrian poets. Friederike Mayroecker's almost daily entries give us a unique view into the interplay between desire and her motivation for writing. In Mayroecker's case, she writes both to keep a vanished world present and to exploit the possibilities of being present for constant experimentation. The poems in this volume are not only studies of how the mind works, moving from fragment to fragment, but also experiments with techniques of repetition, typography, collage, and quotation. Mayroecker transform the humble page into spaces of radical openness. After all, she says, a poem is that which opens everything up. Each poem is date-stamped, and each date acts as a kind of permission for Mayroecker to pour in everything from notes on doctor's visits to gorgeously structured elegies to obsessively repeating fragments of memory that act upon the whole like bits of recurring melody. Rarely before has the intimate process of writing been so exquisitely laid bare than in etudes. Traversing the boundaries of literary forms with Mayroecker's distinctive style, this important volume strikes an admirable balance between playfulness and serious inquiry.

Collected Poems
The work of poet Georg Trakl, a leading Austrian-German expressionist, has been praised by many, including his contemporaries Rainer Maria Rilke and Else Lasker-Schuler, as well as his patron Ludwig Wittgenstein, who famously wrote that while he did not truly understand Trakl's poems, they had the tone of a truly ingenious person, which pleased him. This difficulty in understanding Trakl's poems is not unique. Since the first publication of his work in 1913, there has been endless discussion about how the verses should be understood, leading to controversies over the most accurate way to translate them. In a refreshing contrast to previous translated collections of Trakl's work, James Reidel is mindful of how the poet himself wished to be read, emphasizing the order and content of the verses to achieve a musical effect. Trakl's verses were also marked by allegiance to both the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, a fact which Reidel honors with impressive research into the historicity of the poet's language. Collected Poems gathers Trakl's early, middle, and late work, ranging widely, from his haunting prose pieces to his darkly beautiful poems documenting the first bloody weeks of World War I on the Eastern Front.

Hamish Henderson: Collected Poems
Hailed by some as the most important Scottish poet since Burns, Hamish Henderson lived an epic life against the backdrop of some of the defining social, political and cultural battles - both national and international - of the twentieth century. A soldier, academic, folklorist, political activist, songwriter, translator and poet, he was a seminal figure in the Scottish folk revival and literary renaissance. His humanist legacy lives on in all of these spheres, but it is perhaps through his poetry that we may experience, most keenly, the 'method in his magic.' In every verse and lyric we catch glimpses of a brilliant, complex and highly original mind, whilst also developing a fuller understanding of Henderson's lifelong mission to 'make poetry become people.' Published to celebrate the centenary of the birth of Hamish Henderson, this collected poems is the first since the poet's death and makes available, for the first time, new material from the archive. The book opens with Freedom Becomes People, first published in Chapman 42, and reproduces, in full, his Ballads of World War II and Elegies for the Dead in Cyrenaica. This volume pushes at the boundaries between high modernist poetics and popular folk song; between the profound and profane; between works of individual and collective endeavour and between the poet and his purpose.

Profoundly original yet insistent on the derivative quality of his work, transgressive yet affirmative of tradition, Robert Duncan (1919-1988) was a generative force among American poets, and his poetry and poetics establish him as a major figure in mid- and late- 20th-century American letters. This second volume of Robert Duncan's collected poetry and plays presents authoritative annotated texts of both collected and uncollected work from his middle and late writing years (1958-1988), with commentaries on each of the five books from this period: The Opening of the Field, Roots and Branches, Bending the Bow, and the two volumes of Ground Work. The biographical and critical introduction discusses Duncan as a late Romantic and postmodern American writer; his formulation of a homosexual poetics; his development of the serial poem; the notation and centrality of sound as organizing principle; his relations with such fellow poets as Robin Blaser, Charles Olson, and Jack Spicer; his indebtedness to Alfred North Whitehead; and his collaborations with the painter Jess Collins, his lifelong partner. Texts include his anti-war poems of the 1960s and 70s, his homages to Dante and other canonical poets, and his translations from the French of Gerard de Nerval, as well as the complete Structure of Rime and Passages series.

Selections from The Art of Party Crashing in Medieval Iraq
He's fond of anyone who throws a party he's always at a party in his dreams, for party-crashing's blazoned on his heart . . .a prisoner to the path of fine cuisine. With this statement, al-Khatib al-Baghdadi, a Muslim preacher and scholar, introduces The Art of Party-Crashing, a book that represents a sharp departure from the religious scholarship for which he is known. Compiled in the eleventh century, this collection of irreverent and playful anecdotes celebrates eating, drinking, and general merriment. Ribald jokes, flirtations, and wry observations of misbehaving Muslims acquaint readers with everyday life in medieval Iraq in a way that is both entertaining and edifying. Selove's translation, accompanied by her whimsical drawings, introduces the delights and surprises of medieval Arabic humor to a new audience.

HoodWitch
This riveting debut from poet Faylita Hicks is a reclamation of power for black women and nonbinary people whose bodies have become the very weapons used against them. HoodWitch tells the story of a young person who discovers that they are something that can & will survive / a whole century of hunt. Through a series of poems based on childhood photographs, Hicks invokes the spirits of mothers and daughters, sex workers and widows, to conjure an alternative to their own early deaths and the deaths of those whom they have already lost. In this collection about resilience, Hicks speaks about giving her child up for adoption, mourning the death of her fiance, and embracing the nonbinary femme body--persevering in the face of medical malpractice, domestic abuse, and police violence. The poems find people transformed, remade out of smoke & iron into cyborgs and wolves, machines and witches--beings capable of seeking justice in a world that refuses them the option. Exploring the intersections of Christianity, modern mysticism, and Afrofuturism in a sometimes urban, sometimes natural setting, Hicks finds a place where everyone everywhere is hands in the air, where you know they gonna push & pull it together. / Just like they learned to. It is a place of natural magick--where someone like Hicks can have more than one name: where they can be both dead and alive, both a mortal and a god.
