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.

David Wright

  • About
  • Reviews
  • Born in South Africa in 1920, David Wright came to England at the age of 14 to attend the Northampton School for the Deaf; he graduated from Oriel College, Oxford, in 1942. From 1959 to 1962 he edited, together with the painter Patrick Swift, the brilliant but short-lived magazine X.
    Praise for David Wright 'It is this luxury of authenticity which David Wright's book offers, and the reader who once gives himself up to the deep, quiet pleasure which is to be got from his poems is likely to form an addiction.'
    C.H. Sisson, TLS
    'Wright is a master at finding the appropriate form for his subject-matter.'
    Wendy Cope, TES
