  • The Lonely Funeral by F Starik
    The Lonely Funeral (English, Paperback) F Starik, Maarten Inghels

    Every year, people living in our towns and cities - the homeless, suicides, old people living alone - are found dead. Their funerals are held without relatives or friends. In Amsterdam in 2002, F Starik established a network of poets who would write a personal poem for the deceased and read it at their funeral as an affirmation of their existence.

  • Drapa by Gerdur Kristny
    Drapa (Multiple languages, Paperback) Gerdur Kristny

    Celebrated Icelandic writer Gerdur Kristny's Drapa is a novel-poem which takes its form from Old Norse shield poetry and its mood from modern Nordic crime. But the poem is no fiction: it is about a real woman's murder in the city of Reykjavik, and, through this lens, about all women's deaths. This is Viking poetry at its most contemporary.

  • Samson Agonistes by John Kinsella
    Samson Agonistes (English, Paperback) John Kinsella

    John Kinsella's reworking of John Milton's dramatic poem, Samson Agonistes, confirms Milton as one of the many influences in Kinsella's own poetics. Echoing Milton's themes, he explores how the cyborg Samson - both a symbol of uncontrolled violence and a pacifist peacemaker - must come to terms with his participation in his own powerlessness.
