Annick MacAskill : part four

What other poetry books have you been reading lately?

I recently read Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill’s The Water Horse (translated from the Irish into English by Medbh McGuckian and Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin), Marilyn Dumont’s A Really Good Brown Girl, and Helen Humphreys’ Anthem. I have a thing for strong female voices; to me, all of these women are pioneers in terms of the subjects they treat and the way they write. I’m also busy looking at new drafts from writer friends, which I love.
