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.

Marilyn Hacker will read at Newcastle Poetry Festival.  

Marilyn Hacker has, in a career spanning more than 40 years,established herself as a preeminent poet and translator.She is renowned for her use of form, and her mixing ofcolloquial and high culture, and has been aptly named a 'radical formalist'. Her latest book Blazons: New and Selected Poems 2000-2018 (Carcanet, 2018) is a PBS Special Commendation. Hannah Sullivan's exhilarating debut Three Poems (Faber, 2018), which counterposes innocence and disappointment, birth and grief, was awarded the 2018 T S Eliot Prize.Toby Martinez de las Rivas has published two books with Faber, most recently Black Sun, a work of startling meditation on history, theology, preservation and redemption.
