Circumnavigation was shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best First Collection.


Jane Routh is a photographer who manages thirty acres of ancient woodlands and a flock of geese in North Lancashire. She is the overall winner in the Poetry Business Book & Pamphlet Competition 2001. Circumnavigation is her first collection.

'In language as bright as it is meticulous, Jane Routh’ poems startle us time and again with their vivid evocations of the actuality of places and of things, but then it is her challenging imagination (especially in the sequence 'Signal Flagsâ??) which shows us the spiritual and emotional elements that underlie them. 'Circumnavigation' is an assured and accomplished collection' — Neil Curry

'Outstanding'U A Fanthorpe

'Circumnavigation' introduces a quietly formidable voice' — Michael Donaghy
