Anne Rouse lives in East Sussex. Her Bloodaxe retrospective The Upshot: New and Selected Poems included the new poems of The Divided (2008), along with selections from her first three critically acclaimed earlier collections, Sunset Grill (1993) and Timing (1997) – both Poetry Book Society Recommendations – and The School of Night (2004), and was a Times Literary Supplement Book of the Year in 2008. A new collection, Ox-Eye, is due from Bloodaxe in 2022.
