Quipu

by Arthur Sze

Sze's poetry is bold and versatile and brings together "disparate realms of experience." -The New Yorker


The Speed of Dark

by Ian Duhig

Ian Duhig's The Speed of Dark is structured around his astonishing reworking of the text of Le Roman de Fauvel, a medieval text that railed against the corruption of the 12th-century French court and church....


Hill of Doors

by Robin Robertson

Charged with strangeness and beauty, Hill of Doors is a haunted and haunting book, where each successive poem seems a shape conjured from the shadows, and where the uncanny is made physically present. The collection...


Safest

by Michael Donaghy

The tragic death of Michael Donaghy last year at the age of 50 left English-language poetry incalculably the poorer. Donaghy was one of our very finest poets, and his metaphysically dense yet emotionally direct...


Swithering

by Robin Robertson

WINNER OF THE 2006 FORWARD PRIZE

In Scots, the verb 'swither' has two meanings: to be doubtful, to waver, to be in two minds; and to appear in shifting forms - indeterminate and volatile. From disarmingly direct...


Not In These Shoes

by Samantha Wynne-Rhydderch

Samantha Wynne-Rhydderch’s debut collection for Picador introduces a young poet with a remarkable range of imaginative tactics at her disposal, and seems to announce not one, but several new voices. Not In...


Tramp in Flames

by Paul Farley

Following the exceptional acclaim for his first two books, Farley might have been forgiven for resting on his laurels with his ‘difficult third’ – but Tramp in Flames instead finds him driving his formal...


The Lammas Hireling

by Ian Duhig

Ian Duhig has long inspired a fervent and devoted following. With The Lammas Hireling - the title poem having already won both the National Poetry Competition and the Forward Prize for Best Poem - Duhig has...


Cousin Coat

by Sean O'Brien

Sean O’Brien is widely acknowledged as one of the most gifted English poets now writing, and as a leading poet-critic. Cousin Coat collects the best of O’Brien’s work to date; long-time O’Brien aficionados...


Collected Poems

by Sean O'Brien

This collection, drawing on almost forty years of verse, represents the definitive guide to one of the leading English poets working today. It will allow the reader the chance to survey both the remarkable variety...


The Red-funnelled Boat

by Peter Armstrong

The Red-Funnelled Boat charts a course through richly varied territory, from theological obsession to the paranoid fantasies of the armchair footballer, the vernacular hell of mental illness and the author’s...


Misadventure

by Richard Meier

Misadventure won the inaugural Picador Poetry Prize, and is Richard Meier’s first collection. Misadventure is a book about what we learn, and what we refuse to learn: although Meier’s poems are often deceptively...


November

by Sean O'Brien

November is Sean O’Brien’s first collection since his widely celebrated The Drowned Book, the only book of poetry to have won both the Forward and T. S. Eliot prizes. November is haunted by the missing,...


The Shape of the Dance

by Michael Donaghy

When Michael Donaghy died in 2004 at the age of fifty, he was one of the UK’s best-known and best-loved poets; he was also a literary critic of the first rank. Donaghy’s prose is notable for the same delightfully...


Sidereal

by Rachael Boast

Rachael Boast’s first collection is dominated by astral influence and divine chance, by unseen or remote causes; but despite its celestial title, Sidereal is full of terrestrial concerns, the traffic and chaos...


Conjure

by Michael Donaghy

Conjure is Michael Donaghy’s third collection, and his most accomplished to date, displaying the same trademark elegance, sleight of hand and philosophical wit that have established his reputation as a ‘poet’s...


Jizzen

Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize 2000

by Kathleen Jamie

These poems unfold with a supernatural intensity, alternately dark and celebratory, that set them apart from other treatments of the subject. Through the perspectives of emigrant and native, critic and intimate,...


Banjo

by Samantha Wynne-Rhydderch

While Banjo opens with a clutch of fine lyrics, elegies and set-pieces, at the heart of Samantha Wynne-Rhydderch’s new book is a remarkable tale of darkness and light, music and silence. Celebrating the centenary...


Collected Poems

by Michael Donaghy

The death of Michael Donaghy in 2004 at the age of fifty robbed poetry of one of its best-loved and most naturally gifted practitioners. A modern metaphysical, Donaghy wrote poetry of great wisdom, grace, charm,...


The Floating Man

by Katharine Towers

Appropriately for a book haunted by music, Katharine Towers’ poems exhibit an almost pianistic sense of timing, touch and tone. In The Floating Man, Towers writes about weight and weightlessness, presence...
