The world’s finest poetry quarterly
Since it was founded in 1912, The Poetry Review has been home to the world’s best writing – by both internationally renowned and emerging poets, newcomers and Nobel Prize winners. The latest issue of The Poetry Review includes new poems by Fleur Adcock, Amy Crutchfield, Will Harris, Jodie Hollander, Fawzia Muradali Kane, Vandana Khanna, Fred Melnyczuk, Rainie Oet, Frank Ormsby, Pascale Petit, Chris Rice, Sam Riviere, Ralf Webb and Ruth Wiggins, alongside translations from Hungarian, Korean, Portuguese and Chinese (Baek Eun-seon translated by Jae Kim; Kinga Fabó by Andrew Fentham; Luís Quintais by Lesley Saunders; and Duo Yu by Fiona Sze-Lorrain). We publish Simon Armitage’s lecture ‘Winter words in various moods and metres’, Alison Brackenbury on poems and puddings and Dai George’s reflections on poetry in school. Reviews include Leonard Cohen’s last poems and writings in The Flame, and collections by Tracy K. Smith, August Kleinzahler, Ellen Hinsey, J.O. Morgan, Tishani Doshi, Andrew McMillan, Eve L. Ewing, Raymond Antrobus and Fiona Moore. Read selected highlights on the issue webpage.
