Harriet Tarlo (ed): The Ground Aslant — An Anthology of Radical Landscape Poetry
Published 15 February 2011
Paperback, 180pp, 9.25x7.5ins, £12.95 / $20 / C$22
Recent years have seen the arrival of new approaches to writing about landscape. Partly to do with new eco-sensibilities, this is however also due to a realisation that "landscape writing" need not be confined to literary tourism, or the verbal equivalent of chocolate-box imagery, and to the injection of radical poetic styles. The Ground Aslant is the first volume to engage with this new wave of writing, and presents the work of Tony Baker, Elisabeth Bletsoe, Thomas A. Clark, Ian Davidson, Mark Dickinson, Mark Goodwin, Nicholas Johnson, Peter Larkin, Helen Macdonald, Wendy Mulford, Frances Presley, Peter Riley, Colin Simms, Zoë Skoulding, Harriet Tarlo and Carol Watts.
