CRUCEFIX, Martyn

img_0420 Martyn Crucefix has won numerous prizes including a major Eric Gregory award and a Hawthornden Fellowship. He has published 7 collections of poetry including Hurt (Enitharmon, 2010): “an exceptional ear . . . superbly intelligent . . . urgent, heartfelt, controlled and masterful.” (Kathryn Maris, Poetry London).

His translation of Rilke’s Duino Elegies (Enitharmon, 2006) was shortlisted for the Popescu Prize for European Poetry Translation and hailed as “unlikely to be bettered for very many years” (Magma). His translation of Rilke’s The Sonnets to Orpheus appeared from Enitharmon in 2012.

Recent original collections include The Time We Turned (Shearsman, 2014), A Hatfield Mass (Worple Press, 2014). Daodejing – a new version in English (Enitharmon) appeared in 2016. A new full collection, The Lovely Disciplines, will be published by Seren Books in 2017.
