Product description

Review

"Ruth Padel combines two major gifts: she is both a distinguished poet and a quite exceptional reader of the poetry of others... The result is a book which opens doors, which bids us share with its author and the poems she has chosen a wealth of insight" (George Steiner)

"She argues away the idea that contemporary poetry is "difficult": all it needs is a little work and the rewards are great" (Sunday Times)

"A brilliant snapshot of contemporary poetry. Padel writes with incisive intelligence, particularly in her lively and provocative introduction on gender-related power in the poetry world and why poetry has "lost its audience" (Christina Patterson, Director of the Poetry Society Independent)

"She chooses her poems with impeccable taste, an anthologist of the very best contemporary poetry" (The Times)

"A great gift for any student or poetry virgin who wonders what all the excitement is about" (Glasgow Herald)

Synopsis

Modern poetry is often represented as difficult or remote from most people's experience. This is a passionate attempt to introduce and examine all aspects of contemporary poetry and make it a familiar part of our lives.
