Origins of the Underground, Andrew Duncan

Details 

This isn’t a one-volume history of post-War British poetry. Given the mass of writing about the post-War period, Duncan like a footballer, says he must “go for space”. He has selectively gathered unfamiliar information. As he says, “Generally, if you read ten books on recent literary history you do find that they do all say the same things. This makes reading them a wearing experience. I intend to bang on until you complain about me including too much.”

Poetry Wars, Peter Barry, Andrew Motion & Robert Hampson

Details 

Poetry Wars describes the battle at the National Poetry Society during the 1970s between radicals and conservatives, which had lasting effects on British poetry. Myths and anecdotes about these events have long been circulated, but this is the first detailed account of what happened, based on archival sources, and told by a writer who knew many of those involved.

Simon Armitage, Ian Gregson

Details 

Simon Armitage is one of the most compelling figures in contemporary literature, most conspicuously because of his charismatic style, but also because he has brought into poetry an irreverent, streetwise gusto and a kind of knowledge that often seems to come from outside poetry altogether. This book nonetheless shows that he is a considerable intellectual whose key concerns include space and place, and gender.
Price: £9.99 (£9.99 Inc. VAT)

The Salt Companion to Bill Griffiths, William Rowe

Details 

This is a collection of essays about, and interviews with, the contemporary British poet, Bill Griffiths. His poetry, written over four decades, is wide-ranging in tone, subject, practice and effect, dealing with anything from London, prison, hospital, colonial history, boats, cartoons, old English and dialect poetry, or the classics. Griffiths has long been celebrated as a leading figure of the British Poetry Revival, yet this is to underestimate the continuing impact of this exciting and accessible writer. These essays aim to help ordinary readers and students gain insight into Griffiths’s astonishing jewel-like lyrics and to re-situate him in the mainstream of British poetry.
Price: £19.99 (£19.99 Inc. VAT)

The Salt Companion to Carter Revard, Ellen L. Arnold

Details 

The Salt Companion to Carter Revard is a groundbreaking collection of essays on the work of Osage poet and scholar of medieval English literature, Carter Revard. Erudite, yet highly readable and entertaining, these essays offer multiple perspectives on Revard’s complex and beautifully crafted poetry that should appeal to scholars, students, and general readers alike.
Price: £19.99 (£19.99 Inc. VAT)

The Salt Companion to Diane Glancy, James Mackay

Details 

Diane Glancy is one of the greatest modern Native American writers: this companion provides various readings of her work. Also included are an interview with Glancy herself and a bibliography. This volume will therefore serve as introduction to Glancy for newcomers and in-depth look for those familiar with her work.
Price: £19.99 (£19.99 Inc. VAT)

The Salt Companion to Geraldine Monk, Scott Thurston

Details 

This exciting volume combines the diverse talents of an impressive range of writer-critics in an engaged and lively response to the poetry of Geraldine Monk. Monk’s reputation as one of the most exciting and provocative writer-performers on the British scene has been established for some time and this new collection aims to reflect critically on a prolific career which has spawned fourteen major works in the last twenty five years.
Price: £19.99 (£19.99 Inc. VAT)

The Salt Companion to Maggie O’Sullivan, Salt Publishing

Details 

This companion forms the best introduction to the work of one of Britain's leading experimental writers. Maggie O'Sullivan has an international reputation as a poet both on the page and as a mesmerising performer. Influenced by Bob Cobbing, Barry MacSweeney and Susan Howe, to name just a few — her work breaks through traditional boundaries of performance and writerly practice and, along with Geraldine Monk, she can be seen as a profoundly important player in the early feminist avant-garde in the UK that emerged during the 1970s. She continues to be a major influence on new women’s writing to this day and this volume of essays rightly locates (and relocates) her influence, methodologies and artistic practice within a thriving alternative British poetry.
Price: £19.99 (£19.99 Inc. VAT)
