Lynx: Poetry from Bath:7

Issue 7, September 1998

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

Fred Beake delivers his thoughts on prosody, Alison Croggon speculates on poetry, William Oxley talks about the Imagination, I ponder on J.H.Prynne and chat about books that have caught my eye.

There are poems from Anthony Lawrence, Neile Graham, Marek Lugowski, Alison Croggon, Ken Wolman, Janet Buck and John Kinsella. 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).
