  • Parade's Endby Ford Madox Ford; Gerald Hammond

    Carcanet 2012; US$ 5.82

    Parade's End is the title Ford Madox Ford gave to his greatest work, the four Tietjens novels which -- in Graham Greene's words -- tell the terrifying story of a good man tortured, pursued, driven into revolt, and ruined as far as the world is concerned by the clever devices of a jealous and lying wife'. He wanted to see the book printed in one volume:... more...

  • An Aviary of Small Birdsby Karen McCarthy Woolf

    Carcanet 2014; US$ 14.51

    An Aviary of Small Birds is both elegy to a stillborn son and testament to the redemptive qualities of poetry as a transformative art. Here, birth paradoxically becomes the moment of death when, after a long labour, the baby?s heart gives out. However, just as grief is not linear, so too the book follows an emotional rather than a chronological arc.... more...

  • The Vampyre' and Other Writingsby John William Polidori; Franklin Charles Bishop

    Carcanet 2014; US$ 5.82

    June 18. Began my ghost story after tea. Twelve o? clock, really began to talk ghostly. [Lord Byron] repeated some verses of Coleridge?s Christabel, of the witch?s breast; when silence ensued, and Shelley, suddenly shrieking and putting his hands to his head, ran out of the room with a candle. (from the Diary of Dr John William Polidori, 1816) So... more...

  • A C.H. Sisson Readerby C.H. Sisson; Charlie Louth; Patrick McGuinness

    Carcanet 2014; US$ 29.09

    C.H. Sisson was born in Bristol in 1914. To celebrate his centenary, this Reader includes a generous selection of his poems, translations and essays. The poems are drawn from all periods of Sisson?s writing life, from the darkly satirical work of the 1950s and 1960s to the Virgilian Somerset poems to the reflective late poems in which Sisson, looking... more...

  • Carminaby Gaius Valerius Catullus; Len Krisak

    Carcanet 2014; US$ 18.89

    Catullus is a companion of lovers and of those whom love has disappointed. He is also a satirical and epigrammatic writer who savagely consoles with laughter. Carmina captures in English both the mordant, scathing wit and also the concise tenderness, the famous love for reluctant Lesbia who is made present in these new versions. A range of English... more...

  • Firefliesby Frank Ormsby

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 14.51

    Frank Ormsby's new collection travels among places strange and familiar: from the shaping memories of an upbringing in rural County Fermanagh, to a Belfast reinventing itself in a new century and the exhilarating novelty of America. In the first part of Fireflies Ormsby explores the past and vibrant present of an area of New York State which he... more...

  • The Good Europeanby Iain Bamforth

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 24.72

    Nietzsche, warning his countrymen in the Bismarck era against the nationalism that sought to promote all that was anti-rational in the German tradition, exhorted them to be 'good Europeans', avatars of the enlightened economic man of the eighteenth-century. Yet as RG Collingwood observed in his last great inquiry into the nature of civilisation, a... more...

  • Glass Is Elasticby Jon Glover

    Carcanet 2012; US$ 14.51

    Glass is Elastic is a book of surfaces and reflections, mirrors and windows. What do we see what do we know in a world experienced through lenses and screens? 'Don?t blink. Nobody?s / looking, nobody?s seeing.' Jon Glover explores the treachery and creativity inherent in the eye?s lens, in the eyeball itself, in a microscope or camera, in a telescope,... more...

  • Windmills in Flamesby Tom Raworth

    Carcanet 2013; US$ 14.51

    Tom Raworth?s Collected Poems (2003) was acclaimed by the Times Literary Supplement as a milestone: thirty years' work by a major poet of English modernism gathered for the first time. Raworth moves on, radical, inventive and politically engaged. Windmills in Flames takes a vertiginous ride through the language landscape we inhabit. Poems fragment... more...
