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.

  • About
  • Reviews
  • Joseph Minden is a poet and secondary school teacher. Past publications include Paddock calls: The Nightbook (slub press); The Beef Onion with Will Harris and Hugh Foley, Derivatives with Kat Addis, Woodvale with the Beam-eye Babies and Diptych Brian (all from The Minutes Press); and Soft Hans (The Koppel Press).
    Praise for Joseph Minden 'Joseph Minden's work is an undersong agitated by force, aware of its own partialness. It sees nostalgia's bad sentiment as tainted with a passive, vampiric bloodlust. And, rather than retreat, it makes history part of the poem, seeking to understand its complicity in those structures of feeling which underpin present violence. In Poppy, the longing to escape from - and into - history is exposed, and the boundedness of song both clarified and renewed.'
    Will Harris
