Quote of the Day
I'm filled with admiration for what you've achieved, and particularly for the hard work and the 'cottage industry' aspect of it.

The Song Atlas
Imprint: Carcanet Poetry
Publisher: Carcanet Press
Paperback (242 pages)
(Pub. Sep 2002)
The night roof is a right-round city,
lightpricked with men and wild things:
but, there, no man
has ever killed a chook or goat,
no bear has ever wiped its game:
no crashes, no slips.
The Song Atlas is the world's first anthology of poetry from every country in the world. Five years in the making, the creation of such a book as almost as interesting as the poems contained therein.
Praise for John Gallas 'An enticing and timely collection of translations.'
- The Guardian
