Her Birth by Rebecca Goss (Carcanet/Northern House), 2013:

SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2013 FORWARD PRIZE FOR BEST COLLECTION

WINNER OF THE POETRY CATEGORY, EAST ANGLIAN BOOK AWARDS, 2013

‘The poems in Her Birth unfold their story of love, loss and grief for a baby daughter with pared-down precision and scorching intensity.  The language, like sea-glass, has been ground by a tide that might have crushed words completely.  Instead, it has shaped these translucent poems’ – Helen Dunmore.

The Anatomy of Structures by Rebecca Goss, Flambard Press, 2010:

Highly Commended in The Forward Prize, 2010.

“A very clear voice, catching at the emotional drama of the world, its strangeness, sexiness and occasionally its yearning.” – Robert Seatter

“Fresh, fearless and utterly engaging” – Tribune

“Startlingly good” – R.V. Bailey

The Anatomy of Structures, reviewed by Zoe Brigley.  Brigley looks at a series of Younger British Poets who all appeared originally in Agenda’s online Broadsheets or as chosen young Broadsheet poets in the journal.  I was a much younger poet, back in Broadsheet  number 7 and it means a lot to be reviewed alongside the likes of Helen Mort and Kathryn Gray.  You can read the full review here.

Note:  Due to the sad demise of Flambard Press, copies of The Anatomy of Structures are now available from Inpress Books or held with me.  Please email me at gosspoems@hotmail.co.uk if you would like to purchase a copy.
