Six Latvian Poets is the seventh in Arc's New Voices from Europe and Beyond series. It features the work of six of Latvia's leading young poets, three men and three women all under the age of 35 - Anna Auzina (b. 1975), Ingmara Balode (b. 1981), Agnese Krivade (b. 1981), Marts Pujats (b. 1982), Maris Salejs (b. 1971) and Karlis Verdins (b. 1979).

The anthology also features a fascinating introductory essay which traces the history of Latvian poetry from the earliest written word to the present day, by Latvia's best-known poet and literary ambassador, Juris Kronbergs. This is a bilingual edition, with the Latvian original and the English translation on facing pages.
