Carcanet's Millennium Graves programme culminates in the publication of a limited hardcover edition of The Complete Poems of Robert Graves. The celebrated three volume edition was completed in 1999, and with its full scholarly apparatus it ran to in excess of 1,500 pages. This edition of the poems only, intended for the general poetry lover and the collector rather than the scholar, provides definitive texts of all the poetry. The volume represents in its purest form the achievement of Graves's seventy productive years.
Beryl Graves, his widow, translated in collaboration with him Alarcón's The Infant with the Globe (1955). She met Graves in 1937 and continues to live in Canelluñ.
Dunstan Ward is a Lecturer in English at the University of London's British Institute in Paris, where he has lived since 1973. His publications include Graves's late
unpublished poems Across the Gulf (1992), edited with Beryl and Lucia Graves. He is a member of the management committee of the St John's College Robert Graves Trust, Oxford. Programme editor: Patrick Quinn
