2017’s lyrical journey begins with the winner of the 2016 TS Eliot Prize for Poetry, Jacob Polley’s narrative verse fable Jackself, an extraordinary, fluid and interconnected collection which Eliot panel chair Ruth Padel described as ‘a firework of a book.’ The New Year also gives us a second and much-anticipated anthology, Stranger, Baby, from the new editor of the influential Poetry Review Journal, Emily Berry.
