  • 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...

  • 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...

  • The Hundred Thousand Placesby Thomas A. Clarke

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2010; US$ 15.95

    Delicately looping across several distinct seasons through a variety of highland and island environments, this breathtakingly perceptive prose offers a unique and highly visualized perspective of the meandering Scottish landscape. Suggesting that the nature of walking is a state of continual waking, this reflective and enduring poem trails along... more...

  • Selected Poems: Christina Rossettiby Christina Rossetti; C. H. Sisson

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2012; US$ 15.99

    Christina Rossetti was in a sense the first poet of the Pre-Raphaelites, her Goblin Market and Other Poems (1862) having been - as if by accident - the writing from that group which first caught public attention. It contains many of her best poems. Later work - devotional poems, love lyrics and descriptive pieces - extended the themes and forms of... more...

  • All Justby David Herd

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2012; US$ 16.99

    The poems in this collection are created from the fractured phrases and competing idioms of contemporary movement and the translation between public and private spaces?conversations that start and are broken off; public announcements intervening in private situations; an emergency that is about to unfold in the background. Taking bearings from Dover... more...
