‘Carillonneur’ is the fifth collection of poems – and the third in English – by UEA alumna Ágnes Lehóczky and is published by Shearsman this week. Agnes (pictured) graduated from the UEA Creative Writing (Poetry) MA in 2006 and completed her PhD in Creative and Critical Writing under the supervision of George Szirtes in 2010. Originally from Budapest, Hungary, her first collection in English, ‘Budapest to Babel’, was published by Eggbox in 2008. Her second collection, ’Rememberer’, was also published by Eggbox, in 2012, and her collection of essays on the poetry of Ágnes Nemes Nagy, ‘Poetry: the Geometry of Living Substance’, was published in 2011 by Cambridge Scholars. She currently teaches Creative Writing at the University of Sheffield. ‘Carillonneur’ will be launched at The Hungarian Cultural Centre in London on 24th April.
