Teaching Yourself Mapmaking was a Poetry Book Society Recommendation.


Maps and charts are a recurrent motif in Jane Routh’s new collection with its implicit journey from unknown waters to the intimate landscape of home. Haunted by their own histories, islands, fells and fens shape the way they are lived in by ancestors (both real and adopted), boatbuilders, farmers, fruit growers and the odd saint. Characteristically musical, fresh and vivid, Jane Routh’s poems are themselves a different kind of mapmaking – a deeper way of making sense of the world we’re passing through.

Jane Routh manages woodlands and a flock of geese in North Lancashire. She is a professional photographer.

This is Jane Routh’s second collection. Circumnavigation (Smith/Doorstop, 2002) won the Poetry Business Book & Pamphlet Competition, and was shortlisted for the Forward First Collection Prize. It was also selected for the Random Acts of Poetry project (where books were randomly donated to unsuspecting members of the public).
