Poets' Voices is an international series of books with audio CD's which present collections of poems by significant poets whose work is not available in existing publications. Their poems appear in the original language, together with an English translation on the facing page. With each book, whenever possible, there is a CD recording of the poet reading poems in the collection in the original language and when feasible, in the English translations. Poets' Voices will also feature monographs on key poets about whose lives, works, and influence little is currently available.

In Kevin Hart's seventh collection of poetry he explores the lush tropics of Queensland, Australia where he grew up, the landscapes of the soul, and the rich spirituality of Eros. Harold Blom has claimed Hart as "one of the major living poets in the English language", while Charles Simic has hailed him as "an absolutely original and indispensable poet".
