Lynx: Poetry from Bath:11

Issue 11, May 1999

Editorial: Douglas Clark

This is an occasional magazine with a core of critical articles on poetry. Supplemented by a list of the poets whose work is available in this Webspace. A section of poems is added. Few poems will be published and it is intended to maintain the highest quality. What this magazine is really about is articles and writers are invited to submit if they have some point to make. This is not an academic journal and stress lies on readability. The remit is the world of poetry in the broadest sense. Submissions or comments should be sent to

Carolyn van Langenberg writes about an Australian poetry meet. William Oxley writes about the Imagination. Fred Beake discusses the new Anthology of British and Irish innovative poets `OTHER'. I catch up on poetry books and chunter on about `OTHER' and Keith Tuma's fascinating book `Fishing by Obstinate Isles'.

Richard Bear talks about his new sequence of poems and gives a sampling. There are also poems from Heather MacLeod, Joel Chace, Ruth Daigon, Ahila Sambamoorthy, Janet Buck, and Robert James Berry. I have, as usual, appended my summary of British and Irish URLs.

Details of contributors and access to all their work in the magazine is provided in the Contributors/Index Page.

`Lynx: Poetry from Bath' was selected for Suite 101 by Jaimes Alsop of The Alsop Review, Consulting Editor (Poetry).
