Four Quartets
Four Quartets
Four Quartets is the culminating achievement of T. S. Eliot's career as a poet. While containing some of the most musical and unforgettable passages in twentieth-century poetry, its four parts, 'Burnt Norton', 'East Coker', 'The Dry Salvages' and 'Little Gidding', present a rigorous meditation on the spiritual, philosophical and personal themes which preoccupied the author. It was the way in which a private voice was heard to speak for the concerns of an entire generation, in the midst of war and doubt, that confirmed it as an enduring masterpiece.

This striking new edition marks the seventy-fifth anniversary of publication.

Glass Rooster
Glass Rooster
The poems in The Glass Rooster explore the spaces inhabited by humans and other creatures - not just natural ecosystems like deserts or the alpine zone, but cities and outer space. Each of the eight sections (or 'echo-systems') in the book - The Damp Places, Forest, Cityscape, The Alpine Zone, Space, Home & Garden, Underground and In the Desert - is introduced by a triolet, a French poetic form with repeated lines. Other poems are arranged in pairs, each echoing something about the other, whether desert plants, the presence of balloons or the dangers of working in a mine. The result is a tremendous, riotous exploration of an interconnected world. Our guide on this journey is a glass rooster - observer of stars and lover of hens - who first popped up in Janis Freegard's poetry years ago and wanders unchecked through the book. These are searching, remarkable poems - about art, about places, about unusual expeditions, and about love.

Gold from the Stone
Gold from the Stone
Lemn Sissay was seventeen when he wrote his first poetry book, which he hand-sold to the miners and mill workers of Wigan. Since then his poems have become landmarks, sculpted in granite and built from concrete, recorded on era-defining albums and declaimed in over thirty countries. He has performed to thousands of football fans at the FA Cup Final, to hundreds of thousands as the poet of the 2012 Olympics, and to millions across our TV screens and the airwaves of BBC Radio. He has become one of the nation's best-loved voices.

Halcyon Ghosts
Halcyon Ghosts
Halcyon Ghosts presents thirteen poems, thirteen shapes of knowing - from the cinematic reel 'The Kid', splicing stills of the poet's grandmother and Charlie Chaplin, to the re-verse soundings of 'Six Reels of Joy', celebrating the birth of the poet's daughter. The title poem displays a ghostly counterpoint of birds and words in flight; strikethrough poems are threaded through with runes of fact and fiction. Language, Sampson demonstrates, is as particular and transitory as the patterning of the natural world. Poems layer, link and break apart, sampling and echoing other texts - whether the everlasting cataracts of Keats and Dylan Thomas or reportage gleaned from territorial newspapers of the Old West. Halcyon Ghosts is a profoundly philosophical and personal collection, an assemblage of unearthed vestiges, a quintessence - where names displaced by light, are dark but not lost...Ever-changing, language spills its story.

Hera Lindsay Bird
Hera Lindsay Bird
Bird turns her prescient eye on love and loss, and what emerges is like a helicopter in fog...or a bejewelled Christmas sleigh, gliding triumphantly through the contemporary aesthetic desert...this is at once an intelligent and compelling fantasy of tenderness...heartbreaking and charged with trees...without once sacrificing the forest...Whether you are masturbating luxuriously in your parent's sleepout...or pushing a pork roast home in a vintage pram...this is the book for you...heroically and compulsively stupid...whipping you once again into medieval sunlight. But you know, do whatever you like lol

Homeless
Homeless
"Stand your ground/grip your prayer - these are gripping poems, poems with a social conscience, standing their ground." -Anna Jackson

"John Howell takes us into a world where accustomed notions of `home' have been defaced, distorted and obliterated. It's a familiar but uncomfortable place to be. In an era defined by the refugee crisis and,
in our own cities, escalating homelessness, Howell's poems are not only a call to attention, they are, fundamentally, a declaration of fellow-feeling and aroha." -Gregory O'Brien
