The Poetry Review: Vol 106, No 1, Spring 2016
The latest issue of The Poetry Review is a chance to share in “that primary experience that lies at the heart of all imaginative culture, the free surrender of one susceptible mind to another,” writes Maurice Riordan in his editorial. The spring 2016 issue has fresh new poems by Howard Altmann, Caroline Bird, A.K. Blakemore, Miles Burrows, Leontia Flynn, David Hart, A.B. Jackson, Nick Laird, Patrick Mackie, Pascale Petit, Rachel Piercey and Matthew Sweeney, alongside an exciting selection of American poets, including Rae Armantrout, Danez Smith and Karen Solie, as part of the annual exchange with US magazine, Poetry. Rebecca Perry writes on Maggie Nelson and Dai George on John Ormond, and there are reviews of Linda Gregerson, Marilyn Hacker, John Glenday and Andrew Motion, Christopher Logue’s War Music, and new British and American anthologies. The issue also includes first publication of the National Poetry Competition winners.
