Fred D'Aguiar

One of the best modern collections of poems I have read was by Fred D'Aguiar and is called British Subjects. I believe it was published in 1993 by Bloodaxe. He writes poetry that is sensual and subtle but politicised, with a passionate voice and well crafted and absorbing language. He also uses many types of forms, including sonnets. I recommend 'Gift of a Rose' 'Dread' 'Sonnets from Whitley Bay' and the Barber'. It is now out of print, but you can read the collection online using the LION database, just search for the title and author under text search and the whole book is there. alternatively, I can lend copies to anyone interested.
