The Zoo of the New : Poems to Read Now Hardback
Edited by Don Paterson, Nick Laird
Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series
Selected by Nick Laird and Don Paterson, two of our most lauded and beloved living poets, and conceived of as a collection of their favourite poems, The Zoo of the New is set to establish itself as the classic anthology of our time.
Laird and Paterson have brought together an inspired and diverse selection, ranging from undisputed masterpieces to rare discoveries, as well as drawing upon works in translation and traditional poems from oral cultures.
In effect, this anthology will transform the way we define and appreciate poetry, and it will continue to do so for years to come. Including writers from Shakespeare and Blake to Sylvia Plath and T.
S. Eliot, The Zoo of the New is eclectic, instructive and inspiring at the same time.
