Selected Poems

Manchester: Carcanet Press, 2003

This Selected Poems contains some revised versions of early poems only previously available in the the limited edition pamphlet A Part of Rosemary Laxton (1979) and the long unavailable Overdrawn Account (1980). Most of these poems have been carefully revised and one, 'Some Hope' is published for the first time in a three-part version. The central sections are composed of thematic sequences from my four Carcanet collections to date. The book ends with a section of newer poems, part of a book called Ghost Characters, including 'Pasta-Making' written in 2001.
