Product description

THIS POETRY BUNDLE INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING 3 BOOKS:
- ADVENTURES IN FORM: A COMPENDIUM OF POETIC FORMS, RULES AND CONSTRAINTS - TOM CHIVERS
Welcome to a strange new world in which a poem can be written using only one vowel, processed through computer code, collaged from film trailers, compiled from Facebook status updates, hidden inside a Sudoku puzzle, and even painted on sheep to demonstrate Quantum Theory. Discover a multitude of new and unusual poetic forms - from tweet to time-splice, and from skinny villanelle to breakbeat sonnet - in this inspiring and inventive anthology. Adventures in Form features over ninety poems by forty-six contributors including Patience Agbabi, Christian Bök, Joe Dunthorne, Inua Ellams, Roddy Lumsden, Ian McMillan, Paul Muldoon, Ruth Padel and Hannah Silva. Edited and introduced by Tom Chivers.

- REMAINS TO BE SEEN- DAVID RUSHMER
"In David Rushmer's stunning book, Remains to Be Seen, we find a carefully crafted rendering of a voice in the world, each syllable of this drama earned. There is a microtonal attention to reality and a gorgeous music throughout. This is a truly remarkable first book." --Peter Gizzi

"David Rushmer's poetry can come as a shock. The power of the writing comes from a compelling manipulation of rhythmic devices combined with an insistence on a pared-down word-hoard constantly revisited. It is intense. It has great scope. It has a primitive, elemental feel, with an attention to rhythmic and sonic detail.
Rushmer has acknowledged his debts to French writers such as Maurice Blanchot and Bernard NoËl, and it is the case that his own work doesn't seem to fit comfortably into any particular tradition of British writing. This, of course, is one of its great strengths, Rushmer is a European writer.
The title of the book is as deft as any of its contents in managing to hint at a devastated landscape consisting of nothing but remains, as well as a glimmer of hope in the other sense of the phrase 'it remains to be seen.' I have a high regard for this work. It is subtly crafted, deeply serious and disturbingly memorable." --Peter Hughes

- THE STORY OF NO- EMMA HAMMOND
Emma Hammond delivers an experimental lyric that is wild, weird and full of the errata of modern life. Her poems reappropriate the language of brands, pornography and instant messaging, and argue for Carry On films and Wotsits as the true subjects of poetry.
