About us



Set up by T S Eliot and friends in 1953 ‘to propagate the art of poetry’, the Poetry Book Society is a unique poetry society, providing information, reviews and discounts on the best contemporary poetry for an international community of readers.

The Poet Selectors choose the best new poetry collection of the quarter, which is sent to full members as part of their membership. All members also receive the Bulletin, the quarterly review of new poetry, which contains the Poet Selectors' reviews of the Choice and Recommendations and the selected poets' comments on their own work.

All the recommended titles are available to purchase on this site, along with a wide range of other titles.  Members receive an exclusive 25% discount on all books purchased.
