Oxford Poets 2001

An anthology of stories edited by

"Oxford'Poets' 2001", the second Oxford'Poets' anthology, fulfils two functions. It reminds readers of some of the leading new and older figures on the Oxford list, including substantial extracts from their work in progress. It also continues the work that the first anthology so notably did, introducing poetry by new writers, but now in the context of the Oxford'Poets' list as a whole. The variety of work - in its provenance, its formal choices, its thematic concerns - is impressive. All the poems here are marked by keen intelligence of purpose and design, however various those purposes are and experimental or traditional the designs. The anthology, while reaffirming the rich tradition of the Oxford list, now under the imprint of Carcanet and in association with the English Faculty of the University of Oxford, also breaks new ground. First collections that have followed from the Oxford'Poets' anthology of 2000 include those of Rebecce Elson and, in the next catalogue, Joe Sheerin.
