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.

Latest issue

Eliot, Frost, Gunn and metaphysics: Maurice Riordan talks at length to Paul Muldoon about his Selected Poems in the new winter issue of The Poetry Review, co-edited by Riordan and Sarah Howe. Elsewhere, clouds are a connecting theme – trace the sky’s Rorschach in new poems by Kaveh Akbar, Simon Armitage, Andre Bagoo, Jorie Graham, Daniel Liebert, Pascale Petit, Penelope Shuttle, Hugo Williams, Jane Yeh and others, and in Matthea Harvey’s delightful photo-poem, ‘Kardashian Klouds’. In other prose, Nick Laird, Zaffar Kunial and Bhanu Kapil explore inspirational places, Eleanor Goodman writes on contemporary Chinese women poets, and Jen Hadfield tracks limpet life against human behaviour. There are also reviews of Anne Carson, Helen Farish, Melissa Lee-Houghton, W.S. Merwin, Sharon Olds, Tiphanie Yanique and many more.
