Other Countries: Contemporary Poets Rewiring History

other countries

The Rewiring History Project is about the dynamic ways that living poets respond to and reshape the way we see the past. Edited by Clarie Trevien and Gareth Prior. Available from Inpress Books.

From Inpress:

Other Countries: Contemporary Poets Rewiring History is an anthology of contemporary poetry that engages with events and figures of the past in new compelling ways. Within these pages are fresh and vibrant poems that have found inspiration in history – from poets who share Eliot’s awareness “not only of the pastness of the past, but of its presence”, to those who challenge our established narratives and give voice to history’s marginalized. These are poems that are concerned with our shared and conflicting histories.

Stone, River, Sky: an Anthology of Georgia Poems brings together the work of more than 140 poets in a collection of sweeping diversity and joyous engagement with the muse. Reaching beyond the simple portraiture of Georgia as a location in time and space, these poems show us Georgia as a haunted reverie, a lyrical gesture, a storm of history, a shifting tableau of desire and imagination.
