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

  • Praise for Clive Wilmer 'The Falls offers beguiling glimpses of a world in which the earthly and the heavenly manifest their independence'.
    Jem Poster, PN Review
    '[His poems are] seamlessly constructed... his style is cool, formal, crisp and energetic.'
    John Greening, the TLS
     'A great talent may come from the bringing together of a need with powers that would not seem likely to answer it. I think this may be so with Clive'€™s work, much of which originates from a vague spiritual hunger but which he is forced to realize through an imagination at once precise and rich: the result is his superb poetry.'
    Thom Gunn, 1995
