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.
Frederic Raphael

  • About
  • After studying at Cambridge, where he is now an Honorary Fellow of Christ's College, Michael Edwards taught at the then 'New Universities' of Warwick and Essex (where he succeeded Robert Lowell), before being elected the first British Professor at the Collège de France, Paris. Early volumes of poetry and critical works appeared in England; he then turned to French, for further volumes and numerous books continuing to explore the form of Christianity: Eden-Fall-Heaven, or Life-Death-Resurrection, as illuminating the nature and finality of literature, language, painting, music. He has given poetry readings and lectures in Europe, North America, Africa and the Middle East. The first Briton elected to the Académie française, he was knighted in 2014. He lives in Paris and Burgundy.
