Quote of the Day
Carcanet Press is our most courageous publisher. When you look at what they have brought out since their beginnings, it makes so many other houses seem timid or merely predictable.

  • 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.'
