Welcome to the website of UK poet Pascale Petit.Pascale Petit portrait
Pascale’s seventh collection Mama Amazonica, published by Bloodaxe in September 2017, is a Poetry Book Society Choice. It celebrates the beauty of the wild, whether in the mind or the natural world. It is set in a psychiatric ward and the Amazon rainforest, an asylum for animals on the brink of extinction, and draws on her travels in the Peruvian Amazon. Pascale’s sixth collection, Fauverie  (Seren), was her fourth to be shortlisted for the T. S. Eliot Prize and five poems from it won the Manchester Poetry Prize. Her books have been translated into Spanish, (in Mexico), Chinese, French and Serbian. Pascale has had three collections chosen as Books of the Year in the Times Literary Supplement, Independent and Observer. In 2015 she received a Cholmondeley Award.

This is a major literary feat, and this a brilliant sequence of poems. It burns in its own supranatural light. – Tim Liardet & Vona Groarke, PBS Bulletin on Mama Amazonica
