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.

    Praise for Harry Gilonis 'Reading this selection of Harry Gilonis' poetry was a revelation...This is an impressive volume from a poet whose elegant, witty, and at times angry poetry unquestionably deserves a wider public. There are valuable notes at the end 'unpacking' some of the references and giving background on the poems. Hopefully publication of Rough Breathing will bring Gilonis many new readers.'
    Simon Collings, Stride Magazine
    'Gilonis's Rough Breathing: Selected Poems covers three decades of his work - meticulous, beautifully poised among many traditions: essential poetry-reading, essential-poetry reading.'
    Carol Rumens, The Guardian - 'a small alba' was Poem of the Week, 14th May 2018
    'There is indeed a sense of the renewal of language through Rough Breathing as I turn from page to page, or maybe it might be more appropriate to say from leaf to leaf: Harry Gilonis's poetry consists of words made new.'
    Ian Brinton, Tears in the Fence
