Bloodaxe has revolutionised poetry publishing in Britain over the past 30 years. Internationally renowned for quality in literature and excellence in book design, its authors and books have won virtually every major literary award given to poetry, from the T.S. Eliot Prize and Pulitzer to the Nobel Prize. Anthologies like Staying Alive, Being Alive and Being Human have broken new ground by opening up contemporary poetry to many thousands of new readers.
Widely respected for its innovative, international and diverse range of poetry publishing, including a substantial list of books in translation, Bloodaxe publishes both new and established poets from Britain and Ireland, as well as many poets from the US, including the new Poet Laureate of the United States, W.S. Merwin, and former Laureate Robert Hass. A growing number of Bloodaxe publications now include audio CDs or films on DVD of poets reading their work.
"Bloodaxe Books has a ferocious reputation as a publisher of ground-breaking poetry."
