  • War Poetby Jon Stallworthy

    Carcanet 2014; US$ 14.51

    Jon Stallworthy wrote his first poems during schooldays shadowed by the Second World War and a mother?s memories of a brother and friends killed in the First. He would go on to publish an award-winning biography of Wilfred Owen and to edit the Oxford Book of War Poetry. This book brings together the poems he has written throughout his career in response... more...

  • The Republic of the Husbandby Lucy Tunstall

    Carcanet 2014; US$ 14.51

    Lucy Tunstall?s striking debut collection features a cast of characters ranging from Paul Muldoon and Marianne Moore to Aunt Jane, who fell in love ‘in 1956, or thereabouts?, and Cousin Gillian, who keeps the family?s long-case clock in her caravan (‘Some people do not think this an appropriate arrangement?). Using a variety of registers and forms,... more...

  • A Woman Without a Countryby Eavan Boland

    Carcanet 2014; US$ 14.51

    The poems in Eavan Boland?s new collection consider questions of inheritance and identity, of what is handed down and what is lost. Boland?s poems are acts of preservation: they are aware of the significance of objects, memories, words, in keeping alive what we would otherwise ‘lose / without thinking?. At the same time, they are a holding to account,... more...

  • The Other Mountainby Rowan Williams

    Carcanet 2014; US$ 14.51

    In The Other Mountain Rowan Williams relives moments of intense trial, when women and men are transformed in spirit, and sometimes in body also. He not only reads the signs as they appear in nature and history: he lives them through language. Imagination and words bring us close to our condition. They can witness and relive in all humility the circumstances... more...

  • Fall In, Ghostsby Edmund Blunden; Robyn Marsack

    Carcanet 2014; US$ 21.80

    Edmund Blunden (1896–1974) moved among the ghosts of the Great War every day of his long life, having survived the battles of Ypres and the Somme. His classic prose memoir, Undertones of War, and his early edition of Wilfred Owen?s poems were just two examples of the ways in which he sought to convey his war experience, and to keep faith with his... more...

  • The Essence of the Brontesby Muriel Spark

    Carcanet 2014; US$ 18.89

    Muriel Spark always regarded the Brontės with a novelist?s eye. As Boyd Tonkin argues in his lively introduction, written for this new edition, the Brontės inspired Spark at the very beginning of her own career, but not in a straightforward way. Through her critical and biographical work on the Brontės Spark identified not only their achievements... more...

  • Eye of the Hareby John F. Deane

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 14.51

    Eye of the Hare affirms a spirituality for healing a shattered world. In a richly textured collection, layered with Biblical echoes and the music of the Psalms, John F. Deane explores the possibilities of poetry to redress the failures of care towards the planet and the needs of society. Deane revives the language of sacrament and celebration with... more...

  • Carrying the Songsby Moya Cannon

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 13.05

    Carrying the Songs explores what is lost to time and change, and what endures and is transformed: languages and landscapes, artefacts and songs, carried through a lifetime, across oceans, across centuries. A long-forgotten Gaelic word surfaces from childhood and is reanimated by use; a tiny Stone Age carving speaks across millennia of a shared human... more...

  • Shakespeare's Sonnetsby Philip Terry

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 14.51

    Inspired by the flotsam of contemporary culture, Philip Terry transforms Shakespeare's sonnet sequence into a celebration of language unleashed. The results are as disrespectful and anarchic as a cartoon - and as assured in their control of line. Philip Terry, an acclaimed translator of the poetry of Raymond Queneau, plays language games by the rules... more...

  • Deceiving Wild Creaturesby Jeremy Over

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 14.51

    The naturalist Gilbert White is at the heart of this collection. Like him, Jeremy Over explores an ecology with meticulous acuity. His poems are 'found in the field': the beauty and oddity of the language of others is brought into sharp focus. Robert Herrick's 'sweet disorder in the dress' is subjected to a series of disrobings; a guidebook, instruction... more...
