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

  • 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
