Featuring introductions by Michael Schmidt and readings by some of the contributors.
For two decades Carcanet’s New Poetries anthologies have been a proving-ground for new poets in English from around the world. New Poetries V presents twenty-two new writers of all ages and nationalities. Their forms and themes are wonderfully various. What they have in common is intelligence, curiosity and a willingness to take risks. This book’s surprises remain fresh; the writers promise major things.
