Carcanet literary house originates from a literary magazine published back in the 1960s as a joint project of the Oxford and Cambridge universities. The magazine encountered hardship, but from it the publishing house emerged.

 

 

Carcanet has a very distinct vision of itself and a clear sense of its mission. It strives to build readership and make works of literary merit available to the reader by producing award-winning translations of the classics and of new work from around the world. In an age teased by post-Modern relativism and post-millennial uncertainty, where literary value sometimes plays second fiddle to the demon profit and that other demon of ephemeral political imperatives, Carcanet takes its bearing from the best practices of the last century carefully building a coherent backlist of valuable works.
