outlook, Robert Hass pays exemplary attention to all things
public and private with transformative honesty and humanity.
A pioneer of Albanian poetry, Luljeta Lleshanaku’s lyrical
explorations of sorrow, joy, imprisonment and desire teem with unexpected images. Launching her first UK publication, Neil Astley reads the English translations. From Ireland, Maurice Riordan – with grace, integrity and alertness to his vocation – continues to break new ground with each compelling book. Tickets £14.
