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.

  • Born in 1935 in the town of Vejle, on the eastern, Jutland coast of Denmark, Inger Christensen is considered the foremost poetic experimentalist of her generation. She has won wide acclaim in her native Denmark and other European countries for her fiction, drama, essays and children's books. She is best known, however, for her six slim volumes of poetry, which span a forty-year period. Her collections include Lys (Light, 1962), Graes (Grass, 1963), Alfabet (1981) and her highly acclaimed masterwork Det (IT).
    Praise for Inger Christensen 'Christensen manages to make wit, passion and questioning and astonishing design serve each other's ends as one, and she does it in a way that is utterly her own, unprecedented and a revelation.'
    W.S. Merwin
