Archive for the 'January' Category


I’m feeling both rather daunted and excited at the journey ahead: fifty-two poets, fifty-two books of poetry. That’s quite a lot. I guess we’ll see how I go… I’ve decided that I’m going to select each month’s poets in advance, at the beginning of the month, so here are January’s poets and their works:

Carol Ann Duffy, Rapture (Picador, 2005, winner of the 2005 T.S. Eliot Prize)
Inna Lisnianskaya, Far from Sodom (translated by Daniel Weissbort) (Arc Publications, 2005)
Michael Schmidt, The Resurrection of the Body (Smith/Doorstop Books, 2007)
Lynne Wycherley, North Flight (Shoestring Press, 2006)
Nadine Brummer, Out of the Blue (Shoestring Press, 2006)
