Nothing Is Okay - Button PoetryThe First World War changed the map of Europe forever. Empires collapsed, new countries were born, revolutions shocked and inspired the world. The conflict opened up a vista of possibilities and tragedies for poetic exploration, and at the same time poetry was a tool for manipulating the sentiments of the combatant peoples. In Germany alone during the first few months there were over a million poems of propaganda published. We think of war poets as pacifistic protestors, but that view has been created retrospectively.

Hsin Hsin Ming A Zen Poem -- The Book Of Nothing

Initially I thought that you had embarked on a different path from what you were doing in your previous volumes. It heaves. So I want to ask: To what extent was there any kind of deliberateness or consciousness in it? And I ask this as someone who writes as well, and as someone who has grown tired of their own voice and with their own tricks, in a way. Was there a deliberateness in any of the newness with which you approached the writing?
Funny, painful, complex, adventurous, elegiac, innovative, insightful and enduring, the books we have chosen to celebrate here represent just a small selection of the marvellous work we have read and loved over the past twelve months. Below, in alphabetical order, you will find a few of our favourites, in short reviews written by our staff, and a longlist of a hundred. I have a personal connection to this book. The author was thought to be dyslexic with severe learning disabilities until his deafness was discovered at the age of six. A timely and well-presented selection for children that grown-ups, too, would do well to dip into. They are celebrations of the triumph of motherhood, of a love which defies reason, of the fierce, primal violence of the maternal instinct which is yet the tenderest and gentlest of all emotions.
