Staying Alive Poetry Anthology

Staying Alive is the first book in a series of 3 poetry anthologies by Bloodaxe. It was published in 2002 but remains fresh and relevant today. It has, along with its sequels Being Alive and Being Human, introduced many thousands of new readers to contemporary poetry.

Staying Alive is an international anthology of 500 life-affirming poems fired by belief in the human and the spiritual at a time when much in the world feels unreal, inhuman and hollow. These are poems of great personal force connecting our aspirations with our humanity, helping us stay alive to the world and stay true to ourselves. Many people turn to poetry only at unreal times, whether for consolation in loss or affirmation in love, or when facing other extremes and anxieties.

It contains great poems from the 20th century as well as many recent poems of rare imaginative power from the first decade of the 21st century.
