• The most exciting poet writing in English today

    Michael Ondaatje
  • Her work is full of moments of startling originality and beauty. If she was a prose writer, she would be instantly recognised as a genius

    Colm Toibín
  • Fragmentary, long-lined, often barely punctuated and flipping between the classical and the mdoern, it's a remarkable creation, funny and philosophical

  • Carson writes in language any poet would kill for: sensuous and funny, poignant, musical and tender, brilliantly lighted

    Ruth Padel, New York Times Book Review
  • Anne Carson is a daring, learned, unsettling writer

    Susan Sontag
