Mr. C. Ward - See all my reviews
This review is from: Voice Recognition: 21 Poets for the 21st Century (Paperback)
If you're looking for an anthology of some of the best young British poets, this isn't a bad choice. But despite some excellent poetry from the likes of Jack Underwood and Jay Bernard, where are poets like Sam Riviere and Claire Askew? Scotland, rather annoyingly, is under-represented in the anthology and the selector's criteria for admission is vague and awash with grandiose statements that seem to suggest that they and only they know who and what is the best. Why not have an open, anonymous submission process and let the poetry do the talking?

Worth buying? no. If you want a flavour of the future of British poetry, scour the net and look at magazines like Pomegranate, Magma and anthologies like Stop Sharpening Your Knives.
