A Commonplace is a conversation about how poetry is made and exists as the underlying geology of our lives. Jonathan Davidson’s quiet but distinctive poems – including pieces from the 17th Century, from Kyiv and Lisbon, and from Finland and Nicaragua –  are complemented by outstanding work by sixteen other poets and translators. Littered with unruly footnotes and featuring a gazetteer and bibliography, A Commonplace invites the reader to experience poetry as a lived art form.

Featuring poetry by: Ann Atkinson, Gottfried Benn, Catherine Byron, Ernesto Cardenal, Maura Dooley, Roz Goddard, Sylvia Kantaris, Jackie Kay, Zaffar Kunial, Richie McCaffery, Pauline Stainer and Kit Wright.
