• "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
