Beautiful Girls  by Melissa Lee-Houghton

Was £8.99   Now £5.39

Melissa Lee-Houghton “takes us into places poetry doesn’t often go” according to Ian McMillan when awarding her the title of Next Generation Poet in 2014. Unflinchingly confessional about a life-time of mental suffering, this important collection was a PBS Recommendation and a must have for any poetry lover.

 

Speculatrix  by Chris McCabe

Was £9.99   Now £5.99

Chris McCabe’s fourth collection has been heralded by critics as “one of the most original contributions to British poetry in quite some time”. An experimental and innovative approach to contemporary life shines light into everything from Jacobean theatre to drunk hedgefund managers to conjure a visceral landscape of decay and financial collapse. In Speculatrix, McCabe has pulled out all the stops, showing why he is considered one of British poetry’s most arresting and pioneering spirits.

 

Forms of Protest  by Hannah Silva

Was £8.99   Now £5.39

These poems and experimental texts oscillate between sense and nonsense, meaning and music, always testing the limits of language to represent the lived world. Take this chance to get your hands on Silva’s only poetry publication to date as she tours her fearless and original performance piece, Schlock!, around the UK and as far as Brazil and India.
