Quote of the Day
Devotedly, unostentatiously, Carcanet has evolved into a poetry publisher whose independence of mind and largeness of heart have made everyone who cares about literature feel increasingly admiring and grateful.

William Cookson

  • About
  • Reviews
  • William Cookson was a poet, critic and the founding editor of Agenda, which since the 1960s championed the work of Ezra Pound, David Jones and Geoffrey Hill among other distinguished modern poets. He also edited of Ezra Pound: Selected Prose 1909–1965 (1973). He died in 2003.

    Praise for William Cookson 'The briefest look at the index of poets represented here will testify to the work done by Agenda since it appeared in 1959.'
