    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Mary Oliver celebrates morning, in a collection published for the first time in the UK, along with selected backlist.

    I go down to the shore in the morning
    and depending on the hour the waves
    are rolling in or moving out,
    and I say, oh, I am miserable,
    what shall-
    what should I do? And the sea says
    in its lovely voice:
    Excuse me, I have work to do.


    Whether studying the leaves of a tree or mourning her treasured dog Percy, Mary Oliver is beautifully open to the teachings contained within the smallest of moments. In A THOUSAND MORNINGS she explores, with startling clarity, humour and kindness, the mysteries of our daily experience.

    Format: PAPER COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    Tilt follows the skewed itinerary of attachment and loss, possession and dispossession; the movement of people and things, from Greta Garbo’s Manhattan exile to the Green Bans of 1970s Sydney to the precarious passages of deracinated subjects. In its detours through the copia of material history, lived experience and the archive of poetic forms, the book itself becomes a teeming repository of the real.

    Praise for The Tiny Museums

    This richly imagined and sensuous collection understands human longing. It vividly conjures childhood, and presents adulthood as a series of sometimes haunted negotiations between past and present. A number of poems also conjure dynamic visions of works of art. For Carolyn Abbs, apprehending the world is often a matter of seeing and touching what she knows. She addresses deep issues through making complex linguistic textures and evoking intimate poetic registers.

    Tammy Ho Lai-Ming's second poetry collection Too Too Too Too is sensual, imaginative, narrative-driven and political. Her poetic voice is at once unflinching and delicate, and has the power to be both discomforting and challenging. She combines the ethics and aesthetics of realist fiction with an exploration of the range of possibilities to create a twenty-first-century transnational poetics. These poems will inspire speculation and invite myriad interpretation.

    Listen to this non-prophet,
    This high priestess of poetry:
    No more hatred, just love,
    We are pure love, we are pure love.
    And this gathering, every gathering
    Is sacred. Listen.


    Candy Royalle was a spoken word poet par excellence, presenting her words and ideas with dynamism and passion. In a short 37 years of life she made a profound impact on readers and audiences. Her death unleashed sorrow and love. Candy’s anticipation of the release of this book makes all of us regretful that it didn’t come earlier so that she could enjoy her arrival into a traditional publishing form which was sure to increase her following.

    A trillion tiny awakenings is uncompromisingly direct in its language and set of interests about the world and the politics that impact every aspect of our lives. These poems also carry love. Candy Royalle invokes tenderness and care in this startling new book.

    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    David Malouf's brilliant collection of poems begins with a memory of new love - with 'grace unasked for, urgencies that boom under the pocket of a shirt' - and ends in the intimate territory of the long-familiar where there is no need for words. This volume is marked by an astonishing breadth of intelligence and erudition, yet steps lightly among the objects of our lives and the wonder of everyday replenishments. Everywhere the poems affirm the mystical delights of music, angels and fields where 'first to gather are the starlings in unquiet flocks. Then quietly, the stars'. (To read some poetry, see the AI)

    Title: UNACCOMPANIED
    Author: ARMITAGE SIMON
    Format: PAPER COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    The eleventh single volume of poetry from one of the Britain's most celebrated and influential contemporary poets, Simon Armitage.

    Praised for his powerfully inventive, influential verse, Simon Armitage has resided at the heart of British poetry for more than a quarter century. Throughout, his work has celebrated range and adaptability, most recently in the prose poems of Seeing Stars (2010), the dramatisation of The Last Days of Troy (2014) and the translation of medieval Pearl (2016). But The Unaccompanied, his eleventh single volume, is a return to Armitage's trademark contemporary lyricism. Warm, knowing, generous and moving, the poems in this new collection combine wit and mischief with heart-stopping honesty, and mark out The Unaccompanied as a major publication by a writer the Observer has described as 'the best poet of his generation.'

    Title: UNCOLLECTED POEMS
    Author: THOMAS R S
    Format: PAPER COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    R.S. Thomas (1913-2000) is a major writer of our time, one of the finest religious poets in the English language and one of Wales's greatest poets. His output was prolific: over six decades he published some 25 individual collections of poems, as well as several volumes of prose. A substantial number of his poems, however, have hitherto remained uncollected, and often elusive - poems published in newspapers, magazines and journals (many of them obscure), as well as in private or limited editions. Uncollected Poems - published to mark the centenary of Thomas's birth - brings together for the first time a rigorous selection of the best of these. The fruit of several years' research by Tony Brown and Jason Walford Davies, the volume makes available work which spans the whole of Thomas's career - from an early sonnet to his first wife, M.E. Eldridge (included in his first, unpublished, collection Spindrift in the late 1930s) and an early Iago Prytherch poem published in the Dublin Magazine, to poems which are powerful expressions of the metaphysical meditations of his later years. R.S. Thomas's Uncollected Poems takes its place alongside Collected Poems 1945-1990 (Dent, 1993; Phoenix, 2000), Selected Poems (Penguin, 2003) and Collected Later Poems 1988-2000 (Bloodaxe Books, 2004). It gives readers of R.S. Thomas's work access to much new and fascinating material. Uncollected Poems is a companion volume to R.S. Thomas's Collected Later Poems 1988-2000 (Bloodaxe Books, 2004), the sequel to Collected Poems 1945-1990 (Dent, 1993; Phoenix Press, 2000), which only covers his collections up to Experimenting with an Amen (1986). Collected Later Poems 1988-2000 reprints in full the contents of R.S. Thomas's last five collections, The Echoes Return Slow (Macmillan, 1988: unavailable for many years), and Bloodaxe's Counterpoint (1990), Mass for Hard Times (1992), No Truce with the Furies (1995) and the posthumously published Residues (2002). There is no overlap between the two Bloodaxe editions: none of the poems in Residues, uncollected at the time of his death in 2000, is included in Uncollected Poems.
