In 2013, Seamus Heaney met with Faber poetry editor Matthew Hollis in Dublin. He said that one project he would very much like to complete would be to prepare a personal selection from across the entire arc of his poetry, small yet comprehensive enough to serve as an introduction for all comers. He never managed to make the selection in his lifetime, and after his passing, the project was initially set aside. But now, at last, it has been returned to once more, and the result is an intimate gathering of poems chosen and introduced by the Heaney family. Coinciding with the opening by the National Library of Ireland of a permanent exhibition dedicated to the life and work of Seamus Heaney, this is a singular, accessible selection for new and younger readers that has the opportunity to reach far and wide, now and ahead.

"Hyukunin isshu (one hundred poets, one poem each) is an anthology of one hundred tanka (31-syllable poems) compiled by Fujiwara no Teika in the year 1235 C.E. ... The present collection consists of original poem/commentaries written over the course of several days to explore my feelings in response to the Japanese poems. The model for this is the series of prints by Hokusai, "One hundred poets, one poem each as explained by the old nurse," in which the artist explores the poems not so much in relation to their original setting as in relation to universal experience ... To set the poems by an Oregonian side-by-side with those to which they respond, I have provided the Japanese poems with MacCauley's translation (1917), slightly modernized"--Page [5].

It was 1982, I had just discovered Reggae music (after Bob Marley’s passing), and I heard a song that changed my life for the better. The song was “Chant a Psalm a Day” by a Reggae band , Steel Pulse. Listening carefully to the lyrics of that song revived my love for writing poetry, which I had all but abandoned since 9th grade English class. So the poem “100 Poems Is Not Enough” was written and I decided this should be the title of this book of poems because this speaks so much to how I feel. Hopefully this collection of mostly short, direct to the point, plain and simple Praise Poems will comfort you and inspire you to Praise God with any and all the talents that God has given you.

The Journey Home is a collection of 100 poems written in the traditional poetic form of rhyme and time. Many of the poems are based upon true life experiences, expressions of desperation and struggle, heartache and heart break, in the remembrance or thinking of either someone or a beloved pet, some are as a result of an personal existing mood frame or purely based upon a factual point in time, some are political view points or messages to those involved in the political system and a few are entirely fictional written simply from imagination. All of the combined poems are a journey through life, my life or our lives and the words are uniquely portrayed in perfect poetic context in rhyme and time creating a journey through life.. Each poem has a beginning, a middle and an ending whilst at the same time cleverly flows remaining on the subject matter without diversion. This book is the first book to express my minds abilities to write truely poetically and not merely in prose, ode, or ballad form. Self contained structures all simple, easy to understand and read is the main aim whilst at the same time hopefully ensuring a message as concise as possible is given. These poems will be plondered upon undoubtedly and repetively for years to come by those who enjoy the love of poetry. The ability to both relate and correlate will be experienced by the reader in not one of the poems but many of them. The undying devotion to create and express shines throughout this book from page to page and poem to poem.

Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936), winner of the 1907 Nobel Prize for Literature and author of one of the most popular poems in the English language, 'If–', has long captured the interest of poetry lovers. Here, Thomas Pinney brings together a selection of well-established favourites and the best of the previously uncollected and unpublished poems from The Cambridge Edition of the Poems of Rudyard Kipling (2013). The poems, whether exploring the colonial experience, exposing the injustice of war, or appreciating the beauties of nature, resonate with Kipling's keen observations of his world and strong sense of poetic rhythm. Discovered by Pinney in an array of unlikely hiding places, the uncollected and unpublished poems show the diversity and development of Kipling's talent over his lifetime, and, when combined with long-held favourites, offer readers a unique opportunity to experience Kipling's mastery of poetry in a new way.

It is remarkable that any Westerner—even so fine a poet as Kenneth Rexroth—could have captured in translation so much of the subtle essence of classic Japanese poetry: the depth of controlled passion, the austere elegance of style, the compressed richness of imagery. The poems are drawn chiefly from the traditional Manyoshu, Kokinshu and Hyakunin Isshu collections, but there are also examplaes of haiku and other later forms. The sound of the Japanese texts i reproduced in Romaji script and the names of the poets in the calligraphy of Ukai Uchiyama. The translator's introduction gives us basic background on the history and nature of Japanese poetry, which is supplemented by notes on the individual poets and an extensive bibliography.
