From our new Dark Mountain collection: two poems of return by Raquel Vasquez Gilliland and Ben Weaver. With deer drawing by Rebecca Clark
There’s been poetry at the heart of Dark Mountain from its beginnings. The name itself is taken from a line of Robinson Jeffers.
Many members of the editorial team who have been responsible for the Dark Mountain books are also poets, including Cate Chapman, Michael McClane and Em Strang.
In this section, you can get a taste of the uncivilised poetics for which we have sought to create a home.
