From Rupi Kaur, the top ten Sunday Times bestselling author of milk and honey, comes her long-awaited second collection of poetry. Illustrated by Kaur, the sun and her flowers is a journey of wilting, falling, rooting, rising and blooming. It is a celebration of love in all its forms.
 
this is the recipe of life
said my mother
as she held me in her arms as i wept 
think of those flowers you plant
in the garden each year 
they will teach you
that people too
must wilt
fall
root
rise
in order to bloom

Praise for Sunday Times bestseller milk and honey:

‘Kaur is at the forefront of a poetry renaissance’ Observer
 
‘Kaur made her name with poems about love, life and grief. They resonate hugely’ Sunday Times
 
‘Poems tackling feminism, love, trauma and healing in short lines as smooth as pop music’ New York Times
 
‘Caught the imagination of a large, atypical poetry audience…Kaur knows the good her poetry does: it saves lives’ Evening Standard

On the Margins of Great Empires: Selected Poems
At this point in time Andrew Duncan is better known as a critic of contemporary poetry - and an entertaining, waspish, and unusual critic at that. His own poetic work has been under-recognised and several previous collections - barring those from Shearsman - are out of print. This Selected edition gives the poetry-reading pubic a valuable chance to re-engage with a very original voice. Certainly no experimentalist, but also not a mainstream writer by any stretch of the imagination, he engages with narrative and history in a way that has become unusual in contemporary British poetry.

The Disappearing Room
In Mara Bergman's first full collection, the poet travels from the tenements of New York City to the Sussex countryside, from childhood to motherhood, and beyond. Through a wide range of subjects - steelworkers and young apprentices, photographs and photograms, dolls in a local museum's hidden collection - she writes with a keen sense of time and place. These are probing poems, seeking to discover; poems with a sense of urgency. Here are poems about love, loss, friendship, family, fitting in and, ultimately, acceptance. They are infused with wonder and provide a fresh way of looking at the world.

New Selected Poems of Tom Paulin
Since his precise, potent and subtle portraits of Northern Irish life first came to public attention in the 1970s, Tom Paulin has been an unmissable writer on the contemporary poetry scene. This selection of his work draws on nearly four decades of poetry and translation, updating and expanding upon the Selected Poems 1972-1990, and showcasing the microscopic detail and reinvention of the ordinary with which Paulin writes of place, culture and memory. The Ireland of Paulin's childhood is explored both from a personal and a historical perspective to form a complex picture of a country in turmoil and in recovery. But Paulin's concerns are as international as they are local, as reflected in his long-standing appetite for European writers, histories and languages. Dialectic and lyrical, original and exploratory, ambitious and provocative, Tom Paulin is one of the defining voices of his generation: brilliantly varied and utterly compelling, as apparent from this New Selected Poems.

On Geraldine Clarkson's previous chapbook: Joseph Brodsky wrote joyously about W.H. Auden's range of diction, claiming that Auden ladles from every puddle. Reading Geraldine Clarkson's astonishing debut pamphlet, Declare, invites the same response. Clarkson takes words from every conceivable field and makes them happy bedfellows. The risk of this highly-wrought, hyper-inventive approach is that it could become obscure or overly self-conscious. With Clarkson, neither of these is the case. The poems are sharply honed wonders of meditation that serve the subject and make powerful, complex sense. ... With a pamphlet this rich in brio, skill, and originality, Clarkson has the potential to be a significant and original voice in British poetry. - Daljit Nagra, PBS Bulletin

A Wonderful World 5
See the world through the eyes of poet Philip McDonnell in his latest collection of original poems. Here is an invitation to look at the everyday in a new way and marvel at the wonder all around us. Some poems are inspired by Philip's love of travel, whether he's describing the trip of a lifetime to San Francisco or mourning the loss of the Azure Window on his beloved Malta. Other poems capture moments of spiritual profundity, from pilgrimages to prayers with a dying friend. Philip also celebrates love, friendship and the beauty of nature, and ponders on a world that's changing fast, for better and for worse. Sometimes amusing, sometimes challenging, always thoughtful and sincere - these are poems to read, remember and treasure.

Grinning and Bare
Performance poet and activist Ebony Isis Booth sheds light on Black feminism, racism and inequality, social justice, and self-love in her debut collection of poems. She reveals the irony of a consumer culture that devours and disposes of Black bodies alongside the subsequent creation of social justice movements like Black Lives Matter. In the book's second, poignant half, Booth turns her gaze from the outward to the inner, to look at how her own life has been affected by Black fatherhood, romantic love, and self love. She opens the way for a conversation about the intersections in feminism between the visibility of Black women's lives and their bodies.

Life
Life is Clive Oseman's second collection following Happy, published by Bx3 in November 2016. The apparently random order of the poems in the collection is in fact a carefully planned reproduction of his performance style, in which sudden shifts from high to low reflect the personality of a writer who loves to see the funny side of life but is plagued with episodes of depression and self-doubt. Social commentary, personal turmoil and left-wing politics interspersed with humour make for a potent mix of emotions, with subjects ranging from the problems associated with buying a flat pack personality from a well-known Swedish multinational store to the challenges presented by the election of a lunatic president.

Butterfly Valley
The late 1980s witnessed two devastating chemical attacks by the Saddam regime on Iraqi Kurdistan. The first of these, in 1988, known as the Anfal campaign, saw the destruction of 3000 Kurdish villages, over 40 chemical attacks launched, and 100,000 civilians buried in mass graces, with hundreds more dying of exposure to chemical weapons. The second attack was on the town of Halabja where over 5000 people died instantly. Thousands of people who had survived the attacks in both Anfal and Halabja but had been mildly affected by the gas later died from cancer and other diseases. Butterfly Valley is Sherko Bekes' response to these atrocities. Stunned by the world's silence in the face of this genocide, Bekes - in exile in Sweden at the time - longs to go home and mourn the victims. He laments the repetitive cycles of continuous oppression and suppressed revolutions in Kurdish history, and in his despair speaks to other exiled Kurdish poets (Nali, Hani and Mawlawi among them) from the sixteenth century to the present day. This long poem unfolds in beautifully-drawn images of the poet's homeland - mountains and forests, rivers and villages, meadows and flowers - which are juxtaposed with scenes of death, destruction and suffering. This is an immensely powerful poem, at once lyrical and heart-rending, and Choman Hardi's fine translation at last gives the English-speaking reader the most extensive example yet of his outstanding writing.

A Poet's Notebook...with new poems...obviously... includes not just recent favourites, television and radio commissioned poems, some freshly minted verse written especially for this book but also notes and gives the background on how, why, and where the poems were written. Such documentary reportage and wider contemporary reflection gives a fascinating insight into the genesis, development and presentation of the 21 poems chosen. In effect, the book is part journal, part commentary on the wider implications of `how did we all end up here'? It addresses the light and shade of our days, the celebrations and catastrophes, and acutely observes the collective state and soul of `this one life'. Complete with the poet's trademark humour encouraging the reader to practice, once again, child-like glee. These are poems you can whistle, sing, chant...and be silent with.

Those whom the gods love grow young. Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (1854-1900), one of Ireland's most beloved writers, was a playwright, poet, novelist and author of fairy stories and political essays. A complex man with many sides, he was both a revolutionary thinker and a flamboyant dandy and man about town. His wit and razor-sharp observation made him the toast of society on both sides of the Atlantic before scandal and notoriety stripped him of his position and his freedom. Best-Loved Oscar Wilde gathers a selection of Wilde's celebrated writing, chosen and introduced by John Wyse Jackson.

RoadPeace Poetry: Dedicated to Bobby Colleran
`RoadPeace Poetry' was written in support of the Charites The Bobby Colleran Trust and RoadPeace, both these Charities gave their full support to this publication and kindly provided the Foreword and Introduction for it. The book is powerful, controversial, hard hitting and forthright in raising the many issues that blight our roads today and how they could and should be dealt with. The book is dedicated to Bobby Colleran, a 6 year old boy who lost his life in a road traffic accident outside his Liverpool School in 2014, many of the poems are written purely for Bobby and his family and are extremely emotional. Bobby's Mum summed it up perfectly when she says in her Foreword `Together we can make a difference' She is so right, for all our sakes, children in particular, we have to.

Loving
Loving is a collection of poems about the many different facets of love. The poems span many decades of life which gives them a certain multi-generational relevance. They also touch on difficult topics such as loss and grief, and how to stay positive in times of tragedy. From the love of a person or a place, to the love of nature, music, mythology and legend, the poems explore all different kinds of the way we love. Love for all the ridiculous, quirky everyday happenings and sometimes the other side of the coin, the things that we don't love. The poems explore the love for our fellow human beings, with all of their virtues and faults. Above all, it is a book about loving life, whatever it throws at you, the good and the bad. Some poems explore looking positively ahead in times of great sorrow, and will appeal to fans of poetry that reflects aspects of love and will resonate with all readers. It will also be enjoyed by readers of Heather's previous collections.

Feel Free
Nick Laird has been an assured and brilliant voice in contemporary poetry since his acclaimed debut, To a Fault, in 2005. Feel Free, his fourth collection, effortlessly spans the Atlantic, combining the acoustic expansiveness of Whitman or Ashbery with the lyricism of Laird's forebears Heaney, MacNeice and Yeats. With characteristic variety, invention and wit (here are elegies, monologues, formal poems and free verse) the poet explores the sundry patterns of freedom and constraint - the family, the impress of history, the body itself - and how we might transcend them. Feel Free is always daring, always renewing, and Laird's most remarkable work to date.

I've played, watched and loved football all my life. Along with birds and birding it is my most enduring passion. So I thought I'd write about it. My original intention was to write a poetic history of football, from the creation to the present day. I started fluently, but one thing and another got in the way and the footballing Muse abandoned me after about twenty poems. The poems in this chapbook are those of the original twenty that made it through the selection process and got into the first eleven. Plus a sub. Messi comes last, but it is definitely not him.

Sudden Heaven: The Collected Poems of Ruth Pitter, A Critical Edition
Ruth Pitter (1897-1992) may not be widely known, but her credentials as a poet are extensive; in England from the mid-1930s to the mid-1970s she maintained a loyal readership. In total she produced 17 volumes of new and collected verse. Her A Trophy of Arms (1936) won the Hawthornden Prize for Poetry in 1937, and in 1954 she was awarded the William E. Heinemann Award for The Ermine (1953). Most notably, perhaps, she became the first woman to receive the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry in 1955; this unprecedented event merited a personal audience with the queen. In addition, from 1946 to 1972 she was often a guest on BBC radio programs, and from 1956 to 1960 she appeared regularly on the BBC's The Brains Trust, one of the first television talk shows; her thoughtful comments on the wide range of issues discussed by the panelists were a favorite among viewers. In 1974 the Royal Society of Literature elected her to its highest honor, a Companion of Literature, and in 1979 she received her last national award when she was appointed a Commander of the British Empire. Pitter's many admirers included Owen Barfield, Hilaire Belloc, Lord David Cecil, Philip Larkin, C. S. Lewis, Kathleen Raine, May Sarton, and Siegfried Sassoon. At her death in 1992, one writer claimed, She came to enjoy perhaps the highest reputation of any living English woman poet of her century. Pitter's best poems focus on nature and the human condition, taking us to hidden or secret places, just beyond the material, to the meaning of life. Her poems are often the result of a heightened sense of felt experience-intuitive and evocative. If human life is lived behind a veil faintly obscuring reality, Pitter's poems often lift the edge of the veil. Sudden Heaven arranges Pitter's poems in chronological order, allowing readers to follow her maturation as a poet, and it features a number of poems that have never before appeared in print.

Subjective Geography: A Poet's Thoughts on Life and Craft
This volume presents, in one piece, much of the careful and nuanced thought of one of the finest American poets of the twentieth century, and beyond: she died at the age of ninety-five in 2015. Severe, funny, mischievous, and astoundingly clear, these essays present her thinking on topics ranging from John Berryman's ghost, to prayer, to the stages of vision and revision, to poetry as a radical act, to the essential necessity of faith. It is indeed a geography and it brings to life DeFrees' singular and deeply affectionate sensibility.
