New Poetries IV celebrates the distinctiveness and diversity of new poetry in English. The eleven poets included are variously rooted in Europe, America, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, Australasia; they write with the imaginative energies less of world travellers than of world citizens. Vigorous, observant, questioning, entertaining, this writing is passionately alive and intellectually alert. The poets share an engagement with the possibilities of language and form; yet each is unique in the histories and strategies that enrich their craft. Eleven exciting new voices establish their presence here, making new the tongue and art they have inherited.
From reviews of the previous New Poetries anthologies:
'...an opportunity to sample the dynamic range and variety of carefully wrought forms that modern poetry can, and will continue, to be capable of.' - Independent on Sunday
'New Poetries...puts on show poets who've come good relatively young with older ones whose fame is yet to grow...bringing new English from another continent or other tongue.' - Daily Telegraph
