24 issues

The Poetry Review, published quarterly by The Poetry Society, is home to the world’s best contemporary poetry and writing about poetry. Since first publication in 1912, it has featured new poems, essays and reviews by internationally renowned and emerging poets, both Nobel Prize winners and newcomers. Famous contributors include T.S. Eliot, Allen Ginsberg, Derek Walcott, Philip Larkin, Seamus Heaney, Carol Ann Duffy, Jackie Kay and Alice Oswald.

The trial issue, published Summer 2015, spans old and new trends: ‘Prufrock’ in its hundredth year, the hunt for new ways to ironise the self in Charles Whalley’s essay on post-internet poetry, and St Francis and Flaubert in D.A. Powell’s ‘Letter from San Francisco’. There are new poems by Nick Laird, Graham Mort, Daljit Nagra, Sara Peters, Jennifer L. Knox and the winner of the Geoffrey Dearmer Prize, Zaffar Kunial. The review section includes new collections by Claudia Rankine, Sean O’Brien, Frances Leviston and Michael Hofmann’s selected essays.

Writing, as Seamus Heaney famously suggested, is not unlike digging. To write a poem could be to dig a hole that was there all along, searching, as contributing poet Rachael Boast puts it in her poem 'Winter Rose', for “something / that flowers in the deficit”. For this issue of The Poetry Review, Editor Emily Berry has gathered new poems from Colette Bryce, James Byrne, Melissa Lee-Houghton, Tehila Hakimi, Stanley Moss, Greta Stoddart, Mark Waldron and Jenny Xie. Rebecca Goss writes on grief and closure, Jeremy Noel-Tod on the Iraqi poet Fawzi Karim, and So Mayer on the Scottish poet and filmmaker Margaret Tait. Reviews include new collections by Jay Bernard, Mary Jean Chan, Norman Erikson Pasaribu, Lieke Marsman, Mary Ruefle and Karen Solie.
