Poetry Wales: Forty Years
An entertaining and wide-ranging selection from forty years of one of Britain’s foremost poetry magazines.
Forty years and 154 issues have helped Poetry Wales become one of the bedrock magazines for new poetry in Britain. Despite its name, PW is an internationalist journal, regularly publishing translations and poetry from around the world. It publishes the leading poets of the day, from Heaney to Mapanje as well as seeking out writing’s exciting new talents. At its heart, historically, has been poetry from Wales in both languages.
Former editor, Robert Minhinnick, compiled an anthology which provides an essential overview of the poetry and criticism which has appeared in Poetry Wales, and of poetry from Wales over the last forty years. Excellence has always been the guiding criterium for the magazine, and this book is no exception.
