The Best British Poetry 2011 presents the finest and most engaging poems found in British-based literary magazines and webzines over the past year.
The material gathered represents the rich variety of current UK poetry, including lyric, formal and experimental poetry.
Each poem is accompanied by a note by the poet themselves, explaining the inspiration for the poem and why they decided to write the poem in that form.
The format of the book will be familiar to those who have seen similar annual selections made in other countries such as Ireland, Australia and especially the US, where the equivalent annual book is a popular yet controversial landmark in each year's literary calendar.
At a time when print journals still retain their significance and popularity and when new sites are flourishing on the web, this book offers a snapshot of current poetry practices in the country by offering a diverse selection of excellent poems.
