Edited by Chris Hamilton-Emery

Part of the Salt Companions to Poetry series

Paperback / softback


Maggie O'Sullivan has been a significant force in the alternative British poetry scene since the 1970s.

Her international reputation has continued to grow and she is widely regarded as one of the foremost feminist avant-garde writers working in Britain today.

This new volume of essays and interviews locates O'Sullivan in the wider context of contemporary British poetry and draws to light the wide-ranging influences which inform her work and her own influence upon a new generation of feminist avant-garde writing.

Tackling textual, visual and sound elements in her work her poetry is complex, challenging and rewarding.

O'Sullivan is also a compelling performer of her work.

Thematically she is capable of tackling animal vegetable and mineral ideas in her writing, drawing on mythological and even shamanistic components that are provocative and sensual. This volume contains contributions from Charles Bernstein, Mandy Bloomfield, Ken Edwards, Romana Huk, Peter Manson, Nicky Marsh, Peter Middleton, Maggie O'Sullivan, Redell Olsen, Marjorie Perloff, Will Rowe, Robert Sheppard, Scott Thurston and Nerys Williams.
