Hungarian born George Szirtes came to England as a refugee in 1948. A unique voice in British poetry he has won many awards for his work both as a poet and translator. Galway based Rita Ann Higgins is an anarchic writer who is both funny and outspoken. She has reinvigorated poetry in Ireland over the last decade. A well kept poetry secret, Peter Bennett's richly imagined work draws on a huge range of references, mixing forgotten histories with myth to make poems that are contemporary and darkly funny.
