The Tiny Journalist
Internationally beloved poet Naomi Shihab Nye places her Palestinian American identity center stage in her latest full-length poetry collection for adults. The collection is inspired by the story of Janna Jihad Ayyad, the Youngest Journalist in Palestine, who at age 7 began capturing videos of anti-occupation protests using her mother's smartphone. Nye draws upon her own family's roots in a West Bank village near Janna's hometown to offer empathy and insight to the young girl's reporting. Long an advocate for peaceful communication across all boundaries, Nye's poems in The Tiny Journalist put a human face on war and the violence that divides us from each other.

Word and Stone
Word and Stone is questioning poetry, which explores the ground between language that seeks meaning, and the obduracy of matter, and between life and what seems dead. Its concern is with a sense of the sacred, and the possibility of renewing words such as 'spirit' and 'soul' in a materialist culture. But it celebrates the material world too, drawing upon nature and history in Hooker's native Hampshire and his adoptive South Wales. It contains a number of elegies, paying tribute to friends, and to poets such as T. S. Eliot, David Gascoyne, and Christopher Middleton, and the Americans James Schuyler and Charles Reznikoff. Word and Stone is concerned overall with 'quickness' how words may animate stone, and intimate the life of the dead.

Why Don't We Fall In Love? Part II
Love, love, love. The best thing we have as humans, the feeling that makes us act a certain way and the greatest feeling in the world when we experience it. But love can also be a catalyst for disaster, it can make you do stuff you wouldn't normally do because you believe it's the right thing to do. Love in itself is a wonderful thing and when in love you can feel great but you can also feel like crap and that can lead to heartache. This is about knowing how love really is and what you truly deserve.

The Action
Elegy turns into affirmation, `binding the pulse / back into the body', in this new collection by Eric Gregory Award-winning poet Roger Garfitt. Roger Garfitt has published sparingly but always to good effect. The Action reveals the individual character of each poem and sequence, `written only when the internal pressure demands and the slow pace of craft allows'. Carol Ann Duffy observed in The Guardian that `he clearly believes, quite rightly, in the Muse and his approach has the patience of a journeyman's to his craft'. Hard-won, but not austere, the poems are marked by tenderness and passion; quiet humour rather than irony runs through them. Sean O'Brien writes, `He is both a meticulous re-creator of, for example, the effects of light, and a sociable poet who sees place as expressive of its inhabitants... The minuteness of his attention is often rewarding... an intriguing counterpart to the more public work of Douglas Dunn and Tony Harrison.'

Home on the Move: Two poems go on a journey
Home on the Move explores notions of `home' that are challenged and reshaped by unprecedented migration. The anthology interrogates ideas of home, belonging and language from poetic perspectives. The creative responses are the results of a journey undertaken by two poems about `home': TS Eliot Prize-shortlisted poet Deryn Rees-Jones's poem `HOME' who travelled from the UK via France to Spain and back and Polish poet Rafal Gawin's poem: `DOM. KONSTRUKCJA W PROCESIE SADOWYM' (`Home. Structure on Trial'). Gawin travelled to the UK via Romania and back to Poland and the poem reflects the inspiration of these places. During each journey, the poems were translated by a literary translator and a local film artist.

Edited by Mel Kenne, Saliha Paker and Caroline Stockford A remarkable new selection from the preeminent Turkish poet, Haydar Ergulen The poetry of Haydar Ergulen unquestionably draws upon and expresses many of the basic forces that continue to shape Turkish culture and literature; however, as with most of the best poetry produced anywhere, its central focus is the common, down- to-earth concerns of humanity itself. At the core of Ergulen's work is the pervasive sense of poetry-writing as an inseparable part of life: that the co-existence of poetry, goodness and love is indispensable to the poet as a human being. The poems have been translated by Mel Kenne, Saliha Paker, Caroline Stockford, Arzu Akbatur, Goekcenur celebioglu, Nilgun Dungan, Arzu Eker Roditakis, Clifford Endres, Idil Karacadag, Elizabeth Pallitto, Selhan Savcigil Endres, Ipek Seyalioglu, and Sehnaz Tahir Gurcaglar.

Joyce Sutphen's evocations of life on a small farm, coming of age in the late 1960s, and traveling and searching for balance in a very modern world are both deeply personal and familiar. Readers from Maine to Minnesota and beyond will recognize themselves, their parents, aunts and uncles, and neighbors in these poems, which move us from delight in keen description toward something like wisdom or solace in the things of this world. In addition to poems selected from the last twenty-five years, Carrying Water to the Field includes more than forty new poems on the themes of luck, hard work, and the ravages of time-erasures that Sutphen attempts to ameliorate with her careful attention to language and lyrical precision.

Variations on Dawn and Dusk
In Civil Bound, Myung Mi Kim turns a keen ear to language as the mechanism by which society operates. The poems engage multiple methods to make sense of this pervasive tool, its powers, nuances, and influences over the structure of our civilizations. Through investigations of ecology, capitalism, military powers, colonialization, and supremacy, the book uncovers patterns in the ways that language is active in perpetuating inequality and binding its subjects to the will of those in positions of authority. In questioning systems of oppression, the poems also offer the hope of forging new paths through the connecting power of language. Examining our participation in social contracts, communal goals, and human desires, Kim's poems encourage us to salvage language as a means of connection that binds us in respect and commitment to our fellow human beings.

A Double Life
An unsung classic of nineteenth-century Russian literature, Karolina Pavlova's A Double Life alternates prose and poetry to offer a wry picture of Russian aristocratic society and vivid dreams of escaping its strictures. Pavlova combines rich narrative prose that details balls, tea parties, and horseback rides with poetic interludes that depict her protagonist's inner world-and biting irony that pervades a seemingly romantic description of a young woman who has everything. A Double Life tells the story of Cecily, who is being trapped into marriage by her well-meaning mother; her best friend, Olga; and Olga's mother, who means to clear the way for a wealthier suitor for her own daughter by marrying off Cecily first. Cecily's privileged upbringing makes her oblivious to the havoc that is being wreaked around her. Only in the seclusion of her bedroom is her imagination freed: each day of deception is followed by a night of dreams described in soaring verse. Pavlova subtly speaks against the limitations placed on women and especially women writers, which translator Barbara Heldt highlights in a critical introduction. Among the greatest works of literature by a Russian woman writer, A Double Life is worthy of a central place in the Russian canon.

Silences
Within the visual arts of painting and photography, Martha Ronk finds an undeniable presence lurking: silence. This character slips into pauses, hides between images, and expertly evades the grasp of language. Ronk shows us that what is hidden just off screen in these images might just be the force that gives them power. The poems in Silences seek possibilities of how to form language from a phenomenon that so earnestly resists it. Rather than coax silence out of hiding, Ronk's poems respond to its mysterious presence through questions and conjecture. These poems endeavor to give a much-deserved voice to silence, addressing the power of what is not seen. While silence remains perpetually out of reach, Ronk invites us to follow the language that creeps up to its edges. The poems in this collection form an inquiry that moves through the presence of silence and reveals insights into the character of the visual art in which it lives.

In Her Feminine Sign
A Poetry Book Society Autumn 2019 Wild Card Selection At the heart of In Her Feminine Sign, Dunya Mikhail's luminous new collection of poems, is the Arabic suffix taamarbuta, `the tied circle' - a circle with two dots above it that indicates a feminine word, or sign. This tied circle transforms into the moon, a stone that binds friendship, birdsong over ruins, and a hymn to Nisaba, the goddess of writing. With a deceptive simplicity and disquieting humour reminiscent of Wislawa Szymborska, and a lyricism wholly her own, Mikhail slips between her childhood in Baghdad and her present life in Detroit, between Ground Zero and a mass grave, tracing new circles of light.

A girl and a boy, brought together by a friend, find themselves caught up in a web of love and romance. They're so deeply in love that they see nothing else beyond the other person. In a cruel twist of fate they are torn asunder. Will that love turn to hatred, or the true opposite of love....indifference. This book of poetry is written in lower case.

Crookedness
The world according to Tsvetanka Elenkova is both lucid and hieratic. In it, a lover's eye is `a disc on a chain /with the god of the sun /the window casts on the wall'; but love itself is an `Altar' on which the lovers are `lying crosswise'. The poet's own narrative eye keeps shifting viewpoint - and perspective - not for the sake of it but to create depth and meaning: `The other side of perspective /is dimension'. It's all expressed with economy and the utmost clarity: yet that clarity is deceptive. These poems, too, depend on your point of view: `Reflection is capture' indeed, and reflection may be not only the untroubled mirror image, but the pause and re-handling of meditation. Another way to say all this is that Elenkova is a religious mystic; [...] She lives in the world of cars, mobile phones and city parks, and has an imagination stuffed with cultural riches, [...b]ut she also lives in a poetic world [...] of religious mystery, mortality, love and desire. This mystical verse dives repeatedly into the given, and discovers there a world of symbol and - perhaps above all - movement. It is not Gerard Manley Hopkins's search for `inscape', but instead an apprehension that from moment to moment forms itself into symbolic codes - and then releases those codes into the material, sensual world. -Fiona Sampson

O'Brien, Simone White, and Lynn Xu, and an epilogue by Solveig Ovstebo. These artists frequently draw from their own histories, humors, and instincts as they grapple with or reimagine what's happening in the world around them. Across a range of mediums, their works open up spaces that oscillate between strange and familiar, registering deeply personal experiences as well as more ambient cultural and political pressures. Their practices are all similarly anchored in solitude and stretch outward to meet the world, guiding us to the liminal realms between the public and the intimate, the concrete and the fantastical.

Coffee: A Poem
It is hard to imagine a time when coffee drinking was not part of every-day life and yet it was not until the end of the seventeenth century that it became widespread in Europe. The visit of the Turkish Ambassador to Louis XIV's court in 1669 helped to make coffee-drinking fashionable in France, so it is not surprising that it was a Frenchman who chose to extol its delights, not to mention its health-giving properties, in a long poem written in Latin, a popular language for verse throughout Europe until well into the eighteenth century. L'Abbe Guillaume Massieu, priest turned teacher, gives a witty yet instructive account of the origins of coffee, its real or alleged properties, and how to make the perfect cup, an account which loses none of its sparkle and humour in John T. Gilmore's masterly translation.

Flashes of Fire: A Literary Analysis of the Song of Songs
The essence of true love is in the yearning not in the consummation. This literary analysis of the Song of Songs employs the methods of New Criticism. Each analysis aims to uncover the messages conveyed by the poems and the inner world of the characters. The analysis brings to the fore the highly sophisticated and the original creativity of the love poetry of the Song of Songs. In the introduction, the question is posed as to whether the Song of Songs is an anthology or one literary whole. After discussing the strengths and weakness of the various approaches, the author proposes a novel structure for the Book predicated on the various genres of the love poems. Assis discerns poems of physical description, poems of adoration, and poems of yearning. In addition, he discerns what he takes to be a previously unrecognized genre, poems of rendezvous - a new structure which is based on a psychological understanding of passionate love is now discovered. One of the undisputed dominant features of passionate love is the longing for union with the beloved. Based on this premise, the book is divided into five sections, each of which ends with an attempt to unite or in a union. The structure of the book reflects an emotional and inner development in the psyche of the lovers and in the relationship between them. Throughout the book the interrelationships between the various genres of the love poems, and the development of the characters is spelled out

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.
