The Poetry Review, published quarterly by The Poetry Society, is home to the world’s best contemporary poetry and writing about poetry.

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.
