Don Paterson has edited (with Nick Laird) a major new anthology of poetry, The Zoo of the New: Poems to Read Now (Penguin Modern Classics). Published at the end of March, the anthology has been described by The Irish Times as a work of “inspiring reach and passion.”

Don has also been included in the revamped poetry series, Penguin Modern Poets, alongside Laird and Kathleen Jamie. This volume of the series – which has already featured work by Sharon Olds, Anne Carson, Emily Berry and Warsan Shire – will be published on April 27th.
