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.
Charles Tomlinson

  • About
  • William Barnes was extremely interested in language and studied many languages including Welsh, Hebrew and Hindustani and was devoted to making English a 'Saxonized' language - free of foreign influences. He often wrote in Dorset dialect, which limited his audience and his appeal.
