The Poetry Review Vol 111, No 4 Winter 2021

Published by The Poetry Society since 1912, The Poetry Review is the UK's leading poetry magazine. 

Beautifully bound, more soft back book than magazine, each issue features a selection of poems, and essays exploring poets lives, themes and meaning.

Highlights in this issue include Fiona Benson's highly emotive poem about growing up as a child of an Armed Forces officer, RAF Poemand Hugh McMillan's humorous poem about romance and chemistry, Carbonation. There's also a perspective piece by Hannah Hodgson on writing poetry as someone who is 'chronically dying,' and an essay by Gregory Leadbetter on Walter de la Mare's poetry and his emphasis on the sounds of poetry. Plus, reviews of some of the most important voices in contemporary poetry.
