You will be pleased to hear that (I cannot give the Reasons) Rob Maslen and I have prepared (I only sing the Tunes) a volume of Complete Nonsense by Mervyn Peake for Carcanet, due to be published in the middle of 2011 (The sadness of the Seasons). In addition to the 30 or so poems from his 1972 Book of Nonsense it contains (The madness of the Moons) another 30 or so culled from various printed sources and a further 30 or so that are previously unpublished. Over a hundred in all.

Gosh, that sounds amazing. I accidentally came across his ‘Book of Nonsense’ about two years ago and it’s definitely one of my favourite poetry collections, as you can probably tell from my somewhat ecstatic posting on the matter. I will be keeping an eye out for this book. Thank you for the heads up!
