Selected Poems: Mike Barlow


Mike Barlow’s first collection Living on the Difference, winner of the Poetry Business Book and Pamphlet Competition 2004 and shortlisted for the Jerwood Aldeburgh Prize for best first collection, was described by Gillian Clarke as having ‘cumulative power, cohesion, and a particular, individual voice.’ This was followed by Another Place (Salt 2007), having, to quote Ann Sansom, a ‘directness and lightness of touch, an often brilliant deftness…and an unusual warmth’. The pamphlet Amicable Numbers (Templar 2008) was a Poetry Book Society Pamphlet Choice. Finally, in Charmed Lives (Smith|Doorstop 2012) visually evocative and grounded writing is able to cross and re-cross the divide between the familiar and the strange – ‘a mature and strongly articulated voice’ (David Harmer).
