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.

Praise for Edward Dorn 'This monumental and superbly produced Collected Poems from Manchester's Carcanet Press should go some way to rectifying things, for it reveals the body of Dorn's lifelong work in poetry as an achievement of tremendous intelligence, scope and energy'.
Matthew Sperling, The London Magazine 'Ever since I was arrested for stealing a copy of Gunslinger I have paid very close attention to Edward Dorn's poetry... As a political satirist you can't bypass him, you have to go through him. His humour hooks in and hauls the laugh out of you. His long acquaintance with Britain has helped shape some of the best poets who served their apprenticeships in the 1960s. Culturally speaking the Old Country owes him a great debt... Any publication by Dorn is an exciting event...'
Tom Pickard 'One of the most powerful and unique voices in American poetry.'
Vernon Frazer 'a fundamental masterpiece.'
Thomas McGuane on Gunslinger 'the only plausible, political poet in America, and one of the masters of our contemporary language.'
Peter Ackroyd 'a poet who has absorbed Olson, Williams, and Pound and moved beyond them.'
The Virginia Quarterly Review
