A Box of Sky. Cerul, o cutie
Moira Andrew’s poems are agile in their shifting forms and rhythms.  They have an unsentimental tenderness always underpinned by the passage of time.  They look back, as if surprised, at the ‘new old me’ who writes them, still possessed of a child’s curiosity and a grown woman’s appetites.  Philip Gross.

A Single Instinct. Unicul Instinct
I owe much to Anglo Saxon poetry: its rhythm, subject matter, narrative element, sound, its use of alliteration and assonance rather than word-ending rhyme. However, I'm now increasingly influenced by the sounds of the Pacific - of birds, languages, the strongly choral music of New Zealand and the Pacific Islands - and the otherness of Australia. The secret life of wildlife (in crystal detail) and its absolute right to exist, are very important to me - what they do when we are not there. My own [ ... ]

Bloomvale Home. Azilul de bătrâni Bloomvale
With their finely-calibrated tone of voice, Joan Michelson's new poems vividly document the practicalities, mundane details and inevitable fate of those who live in Bloomvale Home. At the same time, she moves us powerfully with her portraits of the resident’s confusions, heroism and still-vigorous emotions.  One of the residents bursts into song in a ‘language strange’. This highly original book makes es [ ... ]

If Not Now. Dacă nu acum
Jeremy Page’s poetry has been described as graceful, unpretentious, tender, sensitive, precisely observed, witty, surreal. His work has all these characteristics, but above all I experience the poems as infused with three vital qualities which give rise to all the others. First, they are made with an honesty and freshness that allows them to return so elegantly to the puzzles and pleasures of time and memory. Second, they demonstrate compassion, never giving in to hopelessness or bitternes [ ... ]

Ladders of Glass. Scări de sticlă
Mandy Pannett's interest in history, myth, literature and the natural world reveals itself through imagery and metaphor in this as in previous collections. Comments have been made frequently about the vitality, musicality, and visionary aspects of her writing. These qualities are present in 'Ladders of Glass' although the mood is more sombre and there is a noticeable emphasis on twenty-first century issues and dilemmas reflecting the author's ambition for poetry to make a difference, practically [ ... ]

Let It Come to Us All. Să vină pentru noi toți
Penelope Shuttle described Anne Stewart’s first collection as “fearless, muscular, flexible, staunch”, quoting the Finnish Proverb ‘Better a bitter truth than a sweet lie’. In Dilys Wood’s review of her second collection, she refers to Stewart as an exceptional poet who has “forged a recognisable voice … instantly ‘there’ in tone, style, content and experimentation with approach and form.” In this new collection, she ap [ ... ]

Old Knives. Cuțite vechi
I wrote my first ‘book’ before I could write properly in either of my two languages, Polish and English – determined attempts to scrawl misshapen marks on paper which transformed sensation and thought into something else seemed exquisite and hugely important to me. I carried my ‘book’ everywhere. In a way nothing has changed. Socialization, education have both aided and hindered the progress of this particular book. Poetry itself transcends individual languages and [ ... ]

The White Boat. Barca albă
In this wide-ranging, very moving collection, Katherine Gallagher ventures from Australia to Europe in illuminating poems that address issues of travel, identity and belonging, of climate-change, war and destruction, and what it is to be human in this 21st century  ̶  summed up perhaps in William Wilde’s, ‘Sensitive, imaginative and at ease in either a colloquial or more formal style, Gallagher is especially impressive when she writes of those close to her or of the general [ ... ]
