Quote of the Day
Carcanet has always been the place to look for considerations of purely literary and intellectual merit. Its list relies on the vision and the faith and the energy of people who care about books, and values. It is thus as rare as it is invaluable.

  • Reviews
  • Praise for Friederike Mayrocker [Mayröcker] redefines the avant-garde, producing, over the course of a lifetime, a body of work that is experimental without being impersonal, incomprehensible, or armored in intellectual pretension.
    Belle Randall
    'Very consistently, in verse and prose, [Friederike Mayröcker] has combined collage procedures with fantasy and free association, relying on the imaginative power, elegance and inventiveness of her language alone to make up for the loss of referential coherence, linear plots in prose or 'subjects', as distinct from themes, in poems. Her combinations of the most disparate material have their being in total freedom.'
    Michael Hamburger
