The Collected Poems of Mervyn Peake - publication date, June 2008

The publication in June of the long awaited Collected Poems of Mervyn Peake from Carcanet Press, will be one of the most exciting and eagerly anticipated events of recent times, especially as the edition will include over 40 previously unseen drawings. With as disparate a range of subjects as love and war, grief loneliness and heartbreak, humour will not be missing from the wide artistic canon which made up Mervyn Peake's output. The collection will lay before the reader emotions covering the broadest span of human experience, exposing both observation and philosophy, sensitivity and intuition with a clarity inherent in the work of this poet and writer, illustrator, artist and thinker.
