Selected Poems

Penguin, 2006

The best of Sophie’s poems from her previous books, as well as some new ones from her Carcanet collection Pessimism for Beginners.

‘Sophie Hannah’s sparkling, wry poems about life, love and loss adjusting are the perfect riposte to those who whinge that modern poetry doesn’t rhyme. This rhymes, scans and makes brilliant use of complex formal techniques in poems that celebrate the vagaries of the human body, mind and heart.’  Christina Patterson, Independent
