Imaginary Lines is Alistair Elliot’s eighth book of poems, including The Real Poems (Shoestring Press). He has also published eight books of translation, from French, Italian, German, Latin and Greek. His version of Medea for a production by Jonathan Kent went on from the West End to Broadway; more recently, his reconstruction of Euripides’ fragmentary Phaethon (Oberon Books) is looking for a producer.

“An exceptional book of poems, both resonant and immediate, historically demanding and yet always lively and readable.”
– Anne Stevenson, Arts North

“His poetry is ruminative, the product of a keen mind writing itself memos about life and art and time… His sexy moments, and their opposites, also pleased me.”
– Peter Porter, Observer
