Jutland brings together two contrasting poem sequences by 'this brilliant lyricist of human darkness' (Fiona Sampson), Advice on Wearing Animal Prints, winner of the Michael Marks Poetry Award, and Sunday Afternoons at the Gravel-pits. Like all of Selima Hill's work, both sequences chart 'extreme experience with a dazzling excess' (Deryn Rees-Jones), with startling humour and surprising combinations of homely and outlandish. Jutland poses questions about forgiveness, 'but the answers, / like Valentines, are never enough', as she writes in 'Wolverine': 'And can't he understand / I'm trying to love him but I don't know how? / And is it true forgiveness is forgiveness / only if the person first reprints? / That kindness isn't kindness but self-sacrifice?'

Splash like Jesus brings together three contrasting but complementary, familial poem sequences by 'this brilliant lyricist of human darkness' (Fiona Sampson), Buttercup the Sloth, about mothers; Lobo-Lobo, about sisters; and Behold My Father on His Bicycle, about exactly that. Like all of Selima Hill's work, all three sequences chart 'extreme experience with a dazzling excess' (Deryn Rees-Jones), with startling humour and surprising combinations of homely and outlandish.

Selima Hill's poetry has been called wanton, wildly imaginative, tender, intelligent, dangerous, defiant, subversive and startling. All these qualities are strongly present throughout Gloria, a comprehensive selection drawn from ten formally diverse and thematically unified collections, each offering wild variations on her abiding themes: women's identities, love and loss, repression and abuse, family conflict and mental illness, men, animals and human civilisation. Gloria covers all Selima Hill's books from Saying Hello at the Station (1984) to Red Roses (2006), and is published at the same time as her latest collection, The Hat (2008).

The poetic account of a young woman's stay in the psychiatric ward of a large hospital. The only time she feels safe is when swimming; the only place, the sea, preferably underwater. Selima Hill's 17th book of poetry - her 14th from Bloodaxe - takes her back to the territory of her third book, The Accumulation of Small Acts of Kindness (1983), but this revisiting is quite different in style and mood. Over thirty years later, Hill is more able to chart and illuminate with startling humor and surprising combinations of homely and outlandish.

"People Who Like Meatballs" brings together two contrasting poem sequences about rejection by 'this brilliant lyricist of human darkness' (Fiona Sampson). The title-sequence, "People Who Like Meatballs", is about a man's humiliation by a woman. Into my mother's snow-encrusted lap is about a dysfunctional mother-child relationship. Like all of Selima Hill's books, both sequences in "People Who Like Meatballs" chart 'extreme experience with a dazzling excess' (Deryn Rees-Jones), with startling humour and surprising combinations of homely and outlandish.

Selima Hill's poetry has been called wanton, wildly imaginative, tender, intelligent, dangerous, defiant, subversive and startling. All these qualities are strongly present in her latest collection, "Red Roses", which delves into territory her earlier books were only starting to uncover. The new book is orchestrated to read as one single movement fed by variations on a theme, with each rapid-fire poem blooming suddenly into the light. These are brave and disconcerting poems which don't wear a smile to impress or hide behind. Their bleak yet engaging humour isn't a ploy or a plea for sympathy but a facing up to truth. What they offer readers isn't uplifting sentiment but honesty to experience and a shared sense of recognition that denial or evasion will never heal a wound.

Selima Hill's Bunny is set in the haunted house of adolescence. Always blackly comic, sometimes beguilingly erotic, each echoing poem opens a door on madness or menace, shame or blame. Bunny tells the intimate story of a young girl growing up in London in the 1950s, confused and betrayed but finding herself, becoming independent. Appearances are always deceptive. That predatory lodger. The animals outside and within. The girl sectioned in the hospital, nursing her sense of wrong. The blueness of things. The fire. What the house contains, it cannot hide. The poems reveal not only what was papered over but what she learned. About how to be a woman. How to be loved. And what happens to innocence.

Selima Hill's "The Hat" is a disturbing portrayal of a woman's struggle to regain her identity. Her story emerges through a series of short poems, often related to animals: how she is preyed upon and betrayed, misunderstood, compromised and not allowed to be herself. Like all of Selima Hill's books, "The Hat" charts extreme experience with a dazzling excess', with dark humour and surprising combinations of homely and outlandish. "The Hat" was published at the same time Selima Hill's "Gloria: Selected Poems", which draws on ten previous collections.

I May Be Stupid But I'm Not That Stupid brings together six contrasting but complementary poem sequences by 'this brilliant lyricist of human darkness' (Fiona Sampson) relating to family, fear, foreboding and felicity. Elective Mute is about autism and happiness; My Mother and Me on the Eve of the Chess Championships, about a mother who prefers lettuces to life; Fishtank (Poetry Book Society Pamphlet Choice), about a brother who is somebody else; Lambchop, about a creepy old man; The Boxer Klitschko, on finding refuge with swimming, dogs and a jovial uncle; and Helpless with Laughter, on what the parts of the body have to say about themselves.

The poems in A Little Book of Meat are written in the voice of a woman growing up on a remote cattle farm with her mother, a devout Catholic, and her much-loved assortment of animals. She is already nearly 30, knows little of the outside world, and walks with a slight limp. One day a stranger calls, a travelling slaughterman... Where Selima Hill's last book, The Accumulation of Small Acts of Kindness, was the record of a nervous breakdown, A Little Book of Meat tells the story of a love affair, combining the tenderness and subversive humour of her most startling poetry with the imaginative depth and unpredictability of an untamed novel.

Selima Hill pictures her lover not only as a horse, but in 100 different ways - as an angel or a whale, a beetle or a sugar mouse. With a palette ranging from erotic blue to reckless red, her book presents 100 dangerously intimate portraits of love and longing, desire and desolation, jealousy and lust. These poems are raffish love riffs with hundreds of delicious images - whipped up into a lover's frenzy or hitting rock bottom when everything goes pear-shaped. Portrait of My Lover as a Horse is a book for anyone who didn't know poems could hit you where it hurts or where it feels just too good to be true.

Selima Hill has twice re-entered the underworld of mental breakdown through her poetry. Her earlier Accumulation of Small Acts of Kindness presented the strange diaries of a young girl before, during and after her treatment at a psychiatric hospital. In her recent collection, Bunny, she opened another door on madness, revisiting the haunted house of an adolescence cut short by breakdown. Now, in Lou-Lou, she goes back in time to meet her earlier self, sharing her pain, bewilderment and outrage as she retraces her steps through the institutional labyrinth. But the Lou-Lou poems are much more direct: shorn of her crazy metaphors yet still recognisably speaking with Selima Hill's voice. Returning to the world - outlandish London in the Swinging Sixties - Lou-Lou ends with her discharge, when 'we give not a word of thanks,/ not a single smile,/ as they lead us away to be normal,/ hair-dos swaying'. Lou-Lou takes a different tangent to Selima Hill's other treatments of mental breakdown: another way in, another way out. It is also a celebration of first love, a belated token of awe and gratitude for the gloriously caring sweet-smelling Sister in her skin-tight dress.
