Three Scottish Poetry Library titles
The Scottish Poetry Library have kindly sent on three lovely wee books of poetry (co-published with Carcanet): Intimate Expanses: XXV Scottish Poems 1978-2002 (which contains poems by, amongst others, Iain Bamforth, John Burnside, Carol Ann Duffy, Douglas Dunn, Kathleen Jamie, Tom Leonard, Liz Lochhead, Edwin Morgan, Don Paterson and Iain Crichton Smith); How to Address the Fog: XXV Finnish Poems 1978-2002 (22 of the poems included were written in Finnish, three in Finland-Swedish. the poets are: Gosta Agren, Kari Aronpuro, Bo Carpelan, Tua Forsstrom, Paavo Haavikko, Anne Hanninen, Hannu Helin, Markku Into, Eeva Kilpi, Eila Kivikk'aho, Juhani Koskinen, Jarkko Laine, Rakel Liehu, Arto Melleri, Lassi Nummi, Lauri Otonkoski, Markku Paasonen, Mirkka Rekola, Pentti Saarikoski, Helena Sinervo, Eira Stenberg, Anni Sumari, Arja Tiainen, Sirkka Turkka); and At the End of the Broken Bridge: 25 Hungarian Poems 1978-2002 (includes work by Gyula Illyes, Otto Orban, Gyorgy Petri and Sandor Weores).
The SPL website is certainly worth taking a good look around. Particularly interesting is the information on the European Poetry Information Centre:
EPIC is the Scottish Poetry Library's project to expand the Library's European holdings and information resources, putting Scottish poetry into a European context, and to foster connections between Scottish and European poets.
