Melos are very pleased to announce the publication of new pamphlets of poetry for the autumn of 2019:

Fifteen Beads, by Michèle Roberts, comprises fifteen poems each composed of fifty words and interlinked to form a continuously flowing work of great lyrical beauty. As the late and much lamented Helen Dunmore wrote of Michèle Roberts: A magnificent writer.

The Lincolnshire Rising, by Andrew McCulloch, is a successor volume to his much acclaimed collection, Gradual. It combines original poems and some more of the translations for which this poet has been widely praised. Rachel Hadas wrote: These beautiful translations...command an easy, natural flow which find its counterpart in McCulloch's own poems: both voices are musical and full of wonder.

And, just to remind you of The Quiet Life, by Ian Harrow, published earlier this year and gaining excellent reviews.

(All of these books can be ordered post free by choosing titles on the Buy now button, second down on the right.)
