Penguin Modern Poets 2

Controlled Explosions




Encounters with the work of three of the most exciting poets writing now - every three months

Inspired by Penguin's enormously successful '60s series of the same name, the Penguin Modern Poets are succinct, collectible, lovingly-assembled guides to the richness and diversity of contemporary poetry, from the UK, America and beyond. Every volume brings together representative selections from the work of three poets now writing, allowing the seasoned poetry fan and the curious reader alike to encounter our most exciting new voices.

Volume 2, CONTROLLED EXPLOSIONS, introduces two of the most unusual (and best selling) new American poets of recent years alongside one of the best-kept secrets of the British underground. All three combine madcap energy, a keen sense of humour, and enormous enjoyability with truly deep feeling and thought.

Praise for Penguin Modern Poets 2

Two small, sorbet-coloured paperbacks were the most exciting thing in poetry this year. Reviving the 1960s Penguin Modern Poets series with panache, they united new and established voices from Britain and North America in electric pocketfuls
