Smart Devices: anthology of Carol Rumens's Guardian Poem-of-the-Week
Sunday, 3 Nov 2019
Smart Devices, an anthology of 52 poems from The Guardian website "Carol Rumens's Poem of the Week" has just been published by Carcanet. Each poem appears with Carol's original commentary. She's been chosing the poems, noting how they achieve their effects and leading lively discussions on them for over a dozen years.
I'm very pleased to have my poem about the Tasmanian Tiger "Loop" in there, alongside poems by Peter Didsbury, John Ashbery, Denise Riley, WS Graham, Vladimir Mayakovsky, Yves Bonnefoy, John Kinsella, Marilyn Hacker and many others.
