Dante's House, of which the capstone is its magnificent title poem. "Written in fluent, colloquial terza rima and set in sun-drenched Siena during the frenzied pageantry of Il Palio - the Italian city's bi-annual horse race - it is a brilliant, beautifully realized achievement that consolidates Greene's reputation as an emerging master of narrative verse."
Dog Ear - his fourth book of poems and "most powerful work to date", in which "he establishes himself as an exquisite observer of decay, both physical and spiritual".
The second full-length collection from sonneteer and formalist poet Catherine Chandler, Glad and Sorry Seasons (Biblioasis) brings together new suites of poems—on grief, recovery, the deadly sins, and the virtues of faith, hope, and love—to meditate on those polarities of light and dark, joy and sorrow, that illuminate and cloud our lives by turn. With subjects ranging from Alzheimer’s to Edward Hopper’s Automat, in handsomely crafted stanzas and metres, and including translations from Québecois and Latin American poets, Glad and Sorry Seasons is a stunning and learned offering from a poet unmistakably committed to form.
