  • The Essence of the Brontėsby Muriel Spark

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2014; US$ 19.99

    First published in 1993, this book brings together Muriel Spark?s writings on the Brontė sisters, including a selection of their letters and a selection of Emily Brontė?s poems. Perceptively but unsentimentally, Spark considers the Brontės? lives and works, including their generally disastrous attempts at teaching, and reflects on her own fascination,... more...

  • The Republic of the Husbandby Lucy Tunstall

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2014; US$ 15.99

    Lucy Tunstall?s striking début 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.

  • An Aviary of Small Birdsby Karen McCarthy Woolf

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2014; US$ 15.99

    An Aviary of Small Birds is both elegy to a stillborn son and testament to the redemptive qualities of poetry as a transformative art. The book opens at the birth, which paradoxically becomes the moment of death when, after a long labor and an emergency caesarean, the baby?s heart gives out. For the mother, her body flooded with endorphins, euphoria... more...

  • Gumiguruby Togara Muzanenhamo

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2014; US$ 15.99

    Gumiguru is the tenth month of the Shona calendar?a month of dryness and heat before the first rains fall and rejuvenate the land. Togara Muzanenhamo?s second collection is a cycle of poems distilling the experiences of a decade into one calendar year, framed through the natural and agricultural landscapes of Zimbabwe. The book stands as both an elegy... more...

  • The Weather Wheelby Mimi Khalvati

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2014; US$ 15.99

    In these new poems, each of them written in couplets and contained within the space of 16 lines, Mimi Khalvati takes the weather, the seasons, and the passage of night and day as the ground on which she draws her emblems of human life and love. An extended elegy for her mother, the book is also a series of meditations on the small details of animals?... more...

  • Carminaby Gaius Valerius Catullus; Len Krisak

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2014; US$ 19.99

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

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

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Life, End Ofby Christine Brooke-Rose

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2006; US$ 21.99

    This tour de force by a master of experimental novels finds the author reflecting on her old age and its effects on her writing. As she reflects on her own career, her experiments with narrative, and on the narrative she writes here, she ultimately reasserts herself and accepts the life behind her. more...
