Item Description: Enitharmon Press, 2014. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. Marianne Morris has been writing, performing and publishing poetry for over ten years. The On All Said Things Moratorium is her first collection. As the documentation of culture, as the source material of history, and as a medium of resistance, we know that words have the power to shape us. The way that we speak to people shapes the way that they treat us, the way that we speak about ourselves creates certain permissions and impossibilities in our own lives. Therefore, the specific, intentioned, and pointed use of language may also constitute an attempt to change certain ideas – political or otherwise – that depend on language for their perpetuation. – M.M.

Item Description: Enitharmon Press, 2014. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. Deceptively relaxed in tone, these verse letters – sometime serious, sometimes whimsical – are addressed to people who, for various reasons, have been of importance in Neil Curry’s life. Ranging from Angela Carter to the Venerable Bede and from Odysseus to Gilbert White’s tortoise, they cover topics as diverse as smallpox and the paintings of Vermeer, landscape gardening, the King James Bible and Eddie Stobart’s lorries on the M6. There has not been a collection of verse letters of this nature since the Epistles of the Roman poet Horace and, fittingly, it is to Horace that the final letter is addressed, partly by way of apology.

Item Description: Enitharmon Press, 2014. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. The Orchid Boat is a weave of stories: some personal, some historical, some real, some imaginary. Often these may co-exist in a poem just as they do in one's everyday mind, as a collage mirroring our own perception of the world. It is a mix that can include Alexandria or China or Brighton or North Wales. These interwoven stories insist on the acceptance of contradictions and complexity in people and in life; a recognition characteristic of Harwood’s poetry and shaped by his acknowledged influences: Gide, de Montherlant and Cavafy, John Ashbery and Frank O'Hara. In Harwood’s poems the richest material and tone is found in ‘the ordinary’, and in The Orchid Boat this focus is thrown into even greater relief as he explores the power and weight of memories.

Item Description: Enitharmon Press, 2014. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. Sebastian Barker's collection weaves a rich tapestry from the powerful themes that have always been central human questions: how we make our journey through life, how we love those around us, what the nature of belief and of our own mortality is. In the opening sequence, Barker contrasts life's ecstasies with the certainty of loss; in 'The Land of Gold' he travels through the blazing spiritual landscapes of South-West France; while in 'The Tablets of the Bread' he faces the temptations of despair head on. All these themes then receive a masterly summation in 'A Monastery of Light', where Greece becomes the poet's door to redemption and the achieved life. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-13582686028

Item Description: Enitharmon Press, 2014. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. David Austin's first collection of poetry is the tale of The Breathing Earth: not a metaphor, but a living entity, an ecosystem that is the root of every story. Often drawing on his own life experiences in these personal tales, here is the philosophical, meditative poetry at the heart of the English tradition. David Austin is the author of a number of books in his capacity as the most distinguished breeder of roses and founder of the UK's largest and most prestigious rose-grower, but in The Breathing Earth we find a book unlike any of his other work: the account of a career and a life spent in contemplation of the natural world and human behaviour.

Item Description: Enitharmon Press, 2014. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. The poems of Ancient Sunlight range in theme and space from the inner East End of London – where the poet has lived for over thirty years – with its complex richnesses of cultures and the often brutal pains of its regeneration, to great European cities such as Prague and the Italian mountains of his family origins. It is a poetry that marries personal acuity with deep communal awareness, reflecting his work as a poet in schools, hospitals, galleries, drop-in centres, urban and moorland fastnesses, and the wilder places of the human heart. This is a generous, passionate poetry of affirmation and anger for those excluded by, or on the margins of, our drunkenly material literature and society. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-13582685831

Item Description: Enitharmon Press, 2014. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. Into the Woods takes us to imaginary wild woodland in the centre of London. In this story the woodsman, the wild girl and the widow Mary live in a recognisable present, but being archetypes, they continually try to emerge from our time into one that may never have been – the Lambeth woods. We too are drawn into our own fantasies of wild woods from folk tales, and here real-life images of Epping Forest and Box Hill fuel our imagination and work to plunge us, resisting, into the centre of the woods, into heterotopia. In the end though, we emerge back to the familiar, and the widow Mary snaps us back to reality when she purchases an acre of woodland from the Archbishop of Canterbury, signalling the end of the wild wood.

Item Description: Enitharmon Press, 2014. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. Sooner or Later Frank finds Jeremy Reed optimising his London quarter of Soho and the West End, its outlaws, opportune strangers and rogue mavericks condensed into poems coloured by an imagery that pushes pioneering edges towards final frontiers. Right on the big city moment, and with an eye for arresting acute visual detail, Reed makes the capital into personal affairs. His characteristic love of glamour, rock music, seasonal step-changes, and a Ballardian preoccupation with the visionary render this new PBS Recommendation, in John Ashbery's words on Reed's recent work, 'a dazzling tour de force.'.

Item Description: Enitharmon Press, 2014. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. When David Gascoyne celebrated his seventeenth birthday in Paris in 1933, he already had a poetry collection and a novel to his name. He spent much of the next few years in the French capital associating with Eluard, Dalí, Ernst, Breton, Péret and other surrealists. By the age of 20 he had firmly established himself within the movement with the publication of his groundbreaking A Short Survey of Surrealism and the poems of Man's Life Is This Meat. In 1938 Hölderlin’s Madness marked his move away from surrealism in ‘a renewal of vision’, followed by his milestone collection, Poems 1937-1942. After the war Gascoyne revisited Paris, publishing A Vagrant and other poems in 1950 and Night Thoughts, the acclaimed BBC radiophonic poem for voices and orchestra, in 1956. Despite several breakdowns he continued to write, particularly during the latter years of his long life, producing few poems, but many translations, reviews and literary criticism, memoirs and obituaries. Even so it was his contention that he was ‘a poet who wrote himself out when young and then went mad’. This self-deprecating judgement could not be further from the opinion of those who know his work and value his achievement. This New Collected Poems, compiled by Gascoyne’s friend and editor Roger Scott, comprises work that the poet chose to preserve, together with uncollected and unpublished material; all meticulously researched from notebooks and manuscripts held in the British Library and internationally in academic institutions. It falls to present-day readers of Gascoyne’s poems to experience the impact of his work, to recognize its significance in twentieth-century literature, and its continuing relevance.

Item Description: Enitharmon Press. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. Following a tradition that includes Petrarch's Sonnets, Cavalcanti, Dante's works on the vernacular, Montaigne, even Kant, Robertson is compelled towards the construction of the textual subjectivity these authors convey – a subjectivity that honours all the ambivalence, doubt, and tenderness of the human. Yet she remains angered by their confining and exclusionary structure of gender. This lyric book adopts the very form developed by men to reveal themselves, with all of their spoken and unspoken agendas and justifications. For the duration of this text, the men will be the objects of a female desire, a female gaze. At once intimate and oblique, humorous and heartbreaking, composed and furious, The Men seeks to defamiliarise both who and what men are. First published by BookThug in Toronto in 2006, 'The Men' has gone on to sell thousands of copies, captivating readers with its wry yet passionate lyric of men.

Item Description: Enitharmon Editions, 2012. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. No Jacket. Special Edition. Side by Side, the first book created by Gilbert & George just four years into their lifelong artistic partnership, was published in 1971 by Koenig Brothers in Cologne in a limited edition of only 600 copies. Long out of print and now a valuable collectors’ item, it is at last being republished, again in a signed limited edition, in order to bring this essential work back into the public domain. Described in the brief preface as ‘a contemporary sculpture novel’, it functions as a kind of manifesto or declaration of their view of life and art both in terms of the poetic texts and the images we are proud to co-publish with Walther König. The book is divided into three chapters as sequences of double-page spreads linking the typographically elegant texts with a single image, each page complementing and informing the other. The first chapter, ‘With Us in the Nature’, is a celebration of being alone – together – in the countryside, with strong overtones of Romanticism. For Chapter Two, ‘A Glimpse into the Abstract World’, brief but poetically ornate texts are teamed with hand-drawn, very abstracted, imagery. The final chapter, ‘The Reality in Our Living’, provides the gritty urban flipside to the bucolic idyll of Chapter One, the black-and-white images fleshing out the words of the Flanagan & Allen music hall song, ‘Underneath the Arches’, the soundtrack to the celebrated Singing Sculpture that they had first presented in 1969. These images can be understood as a key to all their subsequent pictures. As with the 1st edition, the most immediately striking visual feature of this second edition of Side by Side, before one even opens it, is the hand-marbled cover that makes each of the 2000 copies of this beautiful edition a unique art object. Lovingly created by the artists themselves, these seductive covers function as an invitation to step into the vision of Gilbert & George even before the pages have been opened. Publication: December 2012 The 85 images in the book are reproduced in duotone, and printed on Mohawk Superfine White Eggshell (Library of Congress certified). The book is thread-sewn and fully hand-bound using marbled papers specially created by Gilbert & George. Each marbled cover is unique and each copy is signed and numbered by the artists.

Item Description: Enitharmon Editions, 2009. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. No Jacket. 1st Edition. Jim Dine’s vivid, candid and detailed reminiscences about his friendship and working relationship with Aldo Crommelynck, the printer of Matisse and Picasso, over a period now of more than 30 years are full of affection, humour and layer upon layer of information. In conversations with the art historian Marco Livingstone, Dine, one of the greatest post-war American artists, charts the extent to which his experience of working with a man who was not only a great printer, but also a skilled draughtsman, an aesthete, dandy and bon viveur, coloured and enriched his experience of France on every level, from an appreciation of its art and culture, its city life and countryside, to its food and its specialist shops – especially those in which to find the best tools and musical instruments. Dine’s ruminations take some unexpected but illuminating detours, even into the making of bespoke bicycles, that prove deeply revealing of the specific nature of his love for France and of his many debts to an esteemed colleague, fellow traveller and much loved friend.

Item Description: Enitharmon Press, 2008. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Limited Edition. In the spring of 2008, Michael Longley was appointed Ireland Professor of Poetry. His inaugural lecture, published here for the first time, constitutes ‘an autobiography in poetry’. He writes movingly and entertainingly about how he discovered poetry and celebrates some of the poems and poets who have mattered to him, from childhood memories of the King James Bible, which saturated his mind with beautiful words, and the discovery in his teens first of Keats, de la Mare and Yeats, and then of living Irish writers such as Patrick Kavanagh and Louis MacNeice. Descriptions of Longley's first attempts to write poetry – ‘a combination of hormonal commotion and aesthetic awakening’ – lead on to his meetings with Derek Mahon and Seamus Heaney, their mutual encouragement and shared interests, and to Longley's lasting enthusiasm for poetry of the past and poets of his own and younger generations. Rich in anecdote, typically generous in opinion, Longley's poetic credo makes for heartwarming and inspirational reading. Michael Longley, until recently the Ireland Professor of Poetry, was born in Belfast in 1939 and educated at Trinity College, Dublin, where he read Classics. He has published eight collections of poetry, including Gorse Fires (1991), which won the Whitbread Poetry Award, and The Weather in Japan (2000), which won the Hawthornden Prize, the T.S. Eliot Prize and the Irish Times Poetry Prize. His Collected Poems appeared in 2006 and since then he released the new collection A Hundred Doors (2011). In 2001 Longley received the Queen’s Gold Medal for Poetry, and in 2003 the Wilfred Owen Award. He and his wife, the academic and critic Edna Longley, live and work in Belfast. 150 numbered copies, unsigned Chapbook. Bound in Hahnemühle Bugra Butten wrappers, one of the last books to be letterpress- printed by the Rampant Lions Press. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-9333957193

Item Description: Enitharmon Press, 2011. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Limited Edition. SHORTLISTED FOR THE FORWARD PRIZE FOR POETRY 2011 SELECTED AS AN ECONOMIST BOOK OF THE YEAR ‘Over 32 poems Geoffrey Hill traces an elegiac sequence for William Lawes and his music, intermingling the historical events around his death with flashes of the everyday.The result is a collection that delights in eccentric incongruities. Ben Jonson will appear a line after a popular instant coffee blend has been mentioned, Dante will be found next to a mime artist, Marcel Marceau, and Lawes himself figures auditioning for Ronnie Scott. Mr Hill actively seeks out such juxtapositions. He will audaciously rhyme “haruspex”, an Etruscan soothsayer who saw prophecies in the entrails of victims, with “bad sex”, his poetry delighting in “a dissonance to make them wince”.Yet, as Mr Hill writes, when speaking of Lawes’s tendency to jar different musical themes,“the grace of music is its dissonance”.This discordance is part of his wider belief in the public nature of poetry. Refusing to be a “light entertainer” like the hypocrites in Dante’s inferno, Mr Hill presents a difficult world as he sees it. His gift lies in making such difficulty momentarily understood.’ Economist From working-class Worcestershire roots, Sir Geoffrey Hill (b. 1932) has become Britain’s most celebrated living poet. In his distinguished literary career Hill has published 19 books of poetry and also several books of criticism,recently collated in his award-winning Collected CriticalWritings (OUP, 2008). In 2010 he was elected Oxford Professor of Poetry and in 2012 he was knighted for his services to literature. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # ABE-9333950367

Item Description: Enitharmon Press, 2011. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Limited Edition. ‘A hand-polished gem of a book’ Church Times ‘This is a production of old age, gentle but not soft, both tough-minded and charitable.’ TLS When in 1947 the young writer Ronald Blythe first visited Bottengoms Farm on the Essex-Suffolk border, the ancient house of the artists John and Christine Nash, he could not have guessed that this would in time become his own home and the centre of the writing life. It was to bring him fame with publication of his study of rural life, Akenfield (1969), now a Penguin Modern Classic. In his new book Blythe looks back with affection to the friendships with artists, writers, farmers, gardeners and neighbours that were to enrich his life. At the Yeoman’s House is not merely a spellbinding fragment of autobiography, but also a fascinating picture of the history, topography, botany and folk- lore of a beautiful corner of England made famous in the paintings of John Constable and through Blythe’s own enchanting books. ‘The writing takes the form of a dozen short chapters or movements, interspersed with poems, photos, meetings with other artists such as Cedric Morris and Paul Nash, instructions for thatching or the celebration of a brick floor. Roaming the byways of history and memory with a poet’s exactitude, Blythe particularises and names. Lists are a feature.At one point he compiles a seven-page record of all the plants growing in the garden and illustrates it with John Nash’s marvellous wood engravings.The whole book is a poem: sheer delight.’ Spectator Ronald Blythe has written novels, short stories, poetry, literary criticism and social history. Best known for his novels, in particular Akenfield: Portrait of an English Village, and his non-fiction writing serialised in the Church Times, Blythe was also editor of Penguin Classics for two decades and produced critical studies of Jane Austen,Thomas Hardy,William Hazlitt and Henry James. For many years he has been President of the John Clare Society. In 2006 he was awarded the Benson Medal, the highest honour of the Royal Society of Literature. Signed by Author(s).

Item Description: Enitharmon Press, 2012. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Limited Edition. ‘When my editor at Hutchinson asked me to prepare a Collected Poems I hesitated.To agree to do so seemed to signify an irrevocable ending to my poetry-making, a final dirge-like act.Yet rare is the author who can resist an opportunity to see his cherished works in print. So the book appeared in 2003. But the whistle had been blown only faintly and the Muse did not go home. In 2005, after I survived a major car crash, I found my need to write poems, in the extra-time allowed me, became even more assertive. Here are the most recent of them.They please me, and I hope you and you.’ Dannie Abse Dannie Abse was born in Cardiff in 1923 and studied medicine in London. His first volume of poetry, After Every Green Thing (Hutchinson, 1948), was published two years before he qualified as a physician. Although principally known as a poet, he has also published novels, plays, essays and an autobiography, Goodbye Twentieth Century (Library of Wales, 2011). Dannie Abse has received many literary awards. He is president of the Welsh Academy of Letters. Especially during the last few years Dannie Abse’s poetry and prose has received noteable acknowl- edgements and a number of prizes including the Wilfred Owen Award. In 2008 his memoir The Presence (Vintage) was voted The Wales Book of the Year and in 2009 his New Selected Poems won the Roland Mathias. In 2010 a companion poetry volume to The Presence,Two for Joy, was published and in the same year Cary Archard edited Dannie Abse, A Sourcebook (Seren). 100 numbered copies, signed by the author.

Apart from reminding us that there are still poets who “remember/what poppies and the Last Post mean”, she shows poetic rationing at its most productive’ PN Review.
