Notable items in our collection:

Poetry in America by Julia Kasdorf
"Poetry in American offers extravagantly formed lyric and narrative poems  that function like works of social realism for our time: hard times, wartime, divorce, times of times of downturn and dissipated resources. Where, in such times, can poetry emerge, the book asks - and answers - again and again."


Campaign in Poetry: The Emma Press Anthology of Political Poems
"Some of the sharpest minds writing today offer up shrewd, provocative thoughts on nationalism, climate change, immigration, political apathy amongst voters, arts funding and feminism in the digital age."


"Playful and serious, unforgiving and compassionate, Poetry: A Survivor's Guide offer an original take on a subject both loved and feared. In a series of provocative and inspiring propositions, the act of reading a poem is made new, and the act of writing one is made over."


"Plenty of humor and plenty of seriousness. Joy. And a new kind of poetry: not nice, but rich and real."


Tamil Love Poetry: The Five Hundred Short Poems of the Ainkurunuru 
"...the anthology illustrates the five landscapes of reciprocal love: jealous quarreling, anxious waiting and lamentation, clandestine love before marriage, elopement and love in separation, patient waiting after marriage."
