A powerful new anthology depicting how love over the past two-and-a-half millennia has found its expression in the words of the world's greatest poets. No, Love Is Not Dead is a timely affirmation of the great linguistic diversity of poetry and its ability to express passionate love, the most extreme of human emotions. With influential, award-winning poets including Kim Hyesoon, Laura Tohe and Warsan Shire, and languages ranging from Amharic, Akkadian and Ancient Greek to Yankunytjatjara, Yiddish and Yoruba, this unique anthology engages the reader in reflective tales of unlikely love stories and impossible love, love in a time of politics, surrealist love, visual love and free love, offering an intuitive insight into both historical and present-day perceptions of love across cultures. Including over 50 poets, writing on each of the world's continents, this new anthology of poems about love features a diverse range of original poems written in a variety of languages - modern, ancient, endangered and constructed -, accompanied by English translations and commentaries. Poets included in the book: Apollinaire; Nicole Brossard; Augusto de Campos; Catullus; Chaucer; Dante; Robert Desnos; Ali Cobby Eckermann; Goethe; Kim Hyesoon; Louise Labe; Federico Garcia Lorca; Vladimir Mayakovsky; Miklos Radnoti; Kutti Ravathi; Sappho; Warsan Shire; Laura Tohe; Marina Tsvetaeva. Languages included in the book: Akkadian; Amharic; Ancient Greek; Faroese; French; German; Hungarian; Italian; Japanese; Latvian; Maori; Persian; Polari; Portuguese; Russian; Sanskrit; Scots; Scottish Gaelic; Serbian; Spanish; Urdu; Welsh; Yoruba. Foreword by Laura Tohe, the current Navajo Nation Poet Laureate and Professor Emeritus with Distinction at Arizona State University, who has won awards including the 2020 Academy of American Poetry Fellowship, the 2019 American Indian Festival of Writers Award, and the Arizona Book Association's Glyph Award for Best Poetry.

Chris McCabe is National Poetry Librarian at Southbank Centre's National Poetry Library, where he launched the Endangered Poetry Project in 2017, a major project to collect poetry written in the world's disappearing languages - the basis for his first anthology with Chambers, Poems from the Edge of Extinction (2019). Shortlisted for the Ted Hughes Award and the Republic of Consciousness Prize, his work has been described by The Guardian as 'an impressively inventive survey of English in the 21st Century'. His previously published work crosses artforms and genres including poetry, fiction, non-fiction, drama and visual art.
