  • The Symbolist Movement in Literatureby Arthur Symons; Matthew Creasy

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2014; US$ 23.99

    First published in 1899 , The Symbolist Movement in Literature was a highly influential work of criticism and introduced the French Symbolists to an Anglophone readership. Arthur Symons?s interest in writers such as Verlaine and Mallarmé puts him at the heart of contemporary debates about Decadence and Symbolism in fin-de-siècle literature, but... more...

  • The Lantern Cageby Kelly Grovier

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2014; US$ 15.99

    The poems that Kelly Grovier?s third collection, The Lantern Cage , brings together are prompted by scenes that occur in life?s everyday spaces?city streets and secondhand shops, museum galleries and trains. The title conjures contrasting images of illumination and shadow, warmth and confinement, the burning soul and the material body. These are... more...

  • War Poetby Jon Stallworthy

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2014; US$ 15.99

    Jon Stallworthy wrote his first poems during school days shadowed by the Second World War and a mother?s memories of a brother and friends killed in the First. At school he was introduced to the poems of Wilfred Owen, whose biography he would later write, and to those of others who would be represented in his Oxford Books of War Poetry . Many of the... more...

  • Fall in, Ghostsby Edmund Blunden; Robyn Marsack

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2014; US$ 23.99

    Edmund Blunden 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 comrades in... more...

  • Call Waitingby David C. Ward

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2014; US$ 15.99

    This full-length poetry collection from art historian David C. Ward combines wry meditations on 21st-century life, work, and family with observations of America?its landscapes, its history, its social and foreign policy. Ward?s poems are peopled by those who seem never quite able to inhabit their own lives: from well-known figures such as Andy Warhol... more...

  • Collected Poems: Edward Dornby Edward Dorn; Jennifer Dunbar Dorn

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2012; US$ 38.99

    The first definitive collected edition of American poet Edward Dorn?s writings, this irrepressibly offbeat volume marries the old West with American counterculture. As it celebrates Dorn?s epic poem Gunslinger, this collection?which is both wonderfully resourceful in tone and idiom?puts Edward Dorn on an equal footing with his masters. more...

  • An Ordinary Dogby Gregory Woods

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2011; US$ 15.95

    Both intimate and detached, this poetry compilation delves into the politics and aesthetics of desire—sacred and profane, frantic and serene, refined and grubby. Reflecting upon the comedy of human needs and the vanity of human wishes, these poems consider times of crisis when history is lived and reinvented, myth degenerates into faith, and reason... more...

  • Eye of the Hareby John F. Deane

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2011; US$ 15.95

    These are poems that explore the parameters of a contemporary Christian sensibility in an attempt—through the reclamation of the language of sacrament and celebration—to re-invent a meaningful approach to contemporary problems. Moving from sonnet and stories through Biblical echoes, to the music of psalms, this compilation examines the failures of... more...

  • Pearlby Jane Draycott; Bernard O'Donoghue

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2011; US$ 15.95

    One of the great treasures of the British Library, this 14th-century poem is a work of brilliance. This new translation remakes the imaginative intensity of the original, in which a father sees his lost daughter on the far bank of a river in a dream landscape radiant with jewels. An account of loss and consolation that retains its force across six... more...

  • Red Houseby Sasha Dugdale

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2011; US$ 15.95

    The ghosts and presences that flit about on the margins of people?s lives are evoked in Sasha Dugdale?s third collection of poetry. They are found at the edge of towns where superstores and allotments blur an older landscape, in Europe where emigrants leave their gods, their neighbors, and their memories, and across the chalk Downs of the poet?s... more...
