Book description

Voyages over Voices is the first book length critical exploration of the internationally acclaimed American-British poet Anne Stevenson. A past winner of the The Poetry Foundation's Neglected Masters Award, the Lannan Lifetime Achievement Award for Poetry and the Northern Rock Foundation Writer's Award, Stevenson has long been admired by poets and critics alike as one of the most important contemporary poets on either side of the Atlantic. Angela Leighton brings together a distinguished list of contributors, including Jay Parini, Carol Rumens, Tim Kendall and John Lucas, in a collection that provides a significant and invaluable contribution to understanding Stevenson's work as poet and critic. Voyages over Voices will be required reading for scholars contemporary British and American poetry.


Stevenson has produced a large body of work which is at once representative of common contemporary concerns and highly individual. She is a voice for our age and compellingly her own questing and questioning self.

Andrew Motion

Anne Stevenson is as big and as great a poet as Plath or Bishop, as her inclusion in the Library of America underlines, and, significantly, she is more difficult to assess. Leighton's richly rewarding collection makes a significant and invaluable contribution to our knowledge of her work.
