Lynx: Poetry from Bath:12

Issue 12, June 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

This skeleton issue shuts down the magazine for the summer. No more submissions will be accepted until late September.

Claire Smith gives us a poem remembering Ted Hughes and we have Ann Skea's article on Ted Hughes' Memorial Service. Michael Peverett supplies a short story and a fascinating piece on Joseph Stamper and Idris Davies. Idris Davies wrote the words for the song `The Bells of Rhymney' as a poem. There are two delicate poems from Gary Lehmann and a story by him.

Elisha Porat's short story is excellent and to pad things out a pamphlet selection of my own poems is included, together with my list of British and Irish poetry sites. The database containing past contributions remains available and is easily available through the Contributors/Index Page and the eleven past Issues listed below.

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).
