A Hidden River is a collection of stories and poems dealing with the themes of humanity's assault on its environment and on itself. After long years of federal service, the writer returned to California and found it overrun with industrial, defense and residential development and obsessed with violence. He responded to this condition with poems of fantastic revenge, nostalgia and sorrow, such as "Plum Valley --- Joaquin and Me," "Apricot," and "Red Cadillac." Some stories and poems also deal with our society's violent disregard for human civility and the continuing presence of violence against other human societies. These would include "The Amazing Death of J. J. Finkelstein" and "An Ode to My Mexican Pot." Any country willing to kill or disparage its own will certainly not stop at mauling others. "The War Bird" and "Mars, 2003" are poems of dread, anticipating prolonged, exploitative war. Pax Vobiscum.

Stephanie Norgate's poems celebrate our sensuous contact with each other and with nature. With subjects ranging from a child's first enjoyment of speech to a lover's lost dialect, they make invisible experiences tangible through vivid and intense imagery. Lovers in a mud bath are transformed into a new vision of creation. Her poems share a passionate concern for survival, for the authentic life of the body, and for all the elements but especially water - its touch and surface, its buoyancy and nourishment, the flowing rhythms that enter us.

Denise Levertov’s Poems 1960-1967 brings together all of the poetry first published in The Jacob’s Ladder (1961), O Taste and See (1964), and The Sorrow Dance (1967). Denise Levertov’s Poems 1960-1967 brings together all of the poetry first published in The Jacob’s Ladder (1961), O Taste and See (1964), and The Sorrow Dance (1967). This new compilation, beginning where her Collected Earlier Poems 1940-1960 (New Directions, 1979) left off, shows both a refining of the poet’s craft and a widening of her concerns.” We are living our whole lives in a state of emergency,” she wrote in 1967. Levertov’s staunch antiwar stand is reflected here in such poems as “Life at War” and “What Were They Like?” with what Kenneth Rexroth called “the special luster of a sensibility that never sacrifices humaneness to intensity.” Side by side with her poetry of protest is that of celebration—“Song for Ishtar,” “Come into Animal Presence,” “ Luxury”—and tolerance for “The Mutes” uttering “those groans men use/passing a woman on the street…to tell her she is female” as well as for “The Ache of Marriage.” Here also are a meditation “During the Eichmann Trial,” “Olga Poems” (a sequence in memoriam), and “Say the Word,” the poet’s first published story.

Poetry and Voice, with a foreword by Helen Dunmore, is a book of essays which fuses critical and creative treatments of poetic voice. Some contributors focus on critical explorations of voice in work by poets such as John Ashbery, Simon Armitage, Eavan Boland, Carol Ann Duffy, Arun Kolatkar, Don McKay and Dragica Rajčić, and on the musical voices of the lyric tradition and of poetry itself. Vicki Feaver, Jane Griffiths, Philip Gross, Waqas Khwaja, Lesley Saunders and David Swann reflect on their own poetic processes of composition, and the development of the voices of childhood, old age, migration, landscape, bilinguality, and imprisonment. Laurel Cohen-Pfister and Tatjana Bijelić examine the nature of poetic voice in exile, the need for fresh voices after war and new spaces in which poetic voices can be heard. In this international collection, the contributors give rare and generous insights into inner poetic processes and external effects. They engage with artistic debates about developing, losing and appropriating voice in poetry and approach the question of what is ‘finding a voice’ in poetry from multiple angles. The book will interest literary critics, poets, lecturers, and undergraduate and postgraduate students of literature, poetry and creative writing.
