The Carcanet Collection is now available for annual subscriptions. Subscribing institutions will have site-license access to 70+ titles from the Carcanet list, growing in the course of 2017 to approximately 100 titles, including career-defining new work from the poets laureate of Jamaica (Mervyn Morris) and Wales (Gillian Clarke), a debut from rising star Joey Connolly, plus much-anticipated follow-up collections from Sinead Morrissey, Tara Bergin, Caroline Bird and Karen McCarthy Woolf.
Carcanet publishes the most comprehensive and diverse list of modern and classic poetry in English and in translation, as well as a range of inventive fiction, Lives and Letters and literary criticism. Carcanet was founded in 1969 and from the outset adopted an international perspective, alert to Europe past and present, and to the Anglophone world at large. Seamus Heaney praised Carcanet’s ‘admirable concern to keep lines open to writing in Ireland, Scotland, Wales and America’.
