Since those early days, the complete poetry list has grown to include prize-winning poets from twenty-nine countries. Many of the poets have toured and been interviewed in the U.S. Some are Nobel Prize winners. This catalog introduces some highly regarded poets from publishers whose lists are being distributed in the U.S. and Canada for the first time.
The rewards in publishing poetry are sometimes sublime, as opposed to commercial, but reader response over the years has justified our commitment. The strength of the list is evidenced on this page, on which we salute recent prize-winners whose books are currently being read throughout the world.
Now in his 80s, British poet R.S. Thomas continues to write prolifically and uncompromisingly, as the title of his most recent collection, No Truce with the Furies, suggests. Published by Bloodaxe and being brought out in the U.S. in March by Dufour, these poems by a clergyman in the Church of Wales, are often spiritual in nature, but are more jeremiad than serene meditation.
