To be alive is to be inside the wave, always travelling until it breaks and is gone.

These poems are concerned with the borderline between the living and the dead - the underworld and the human living world - and the exquisitely intense being of both.

They possess a spare, eloquent lyricism as they explore the bliss and anguish of the voyage.

Inside the Wave is Helen Dunmore's first new poetry book since The Malarkey (2012), whose title-poem won the National Poetry Competition.

Her other books include Glad of These Times (2007), and Out of the Blue: Poems 1975-2001 (2001), a comprehensive selection drawing on seven previous collections.

Her final poem, 'Hold out your arms', written shortly before her death and not included in the first printing of Inside the Wave, has now been added to the reprint.
