Poet, Translator

Carole Satyamurti is a poet and sociologist, who lives and works in London. She teaches at the Tavistock Clinic, where her principal academic interest is in the relevance of psychoanalytic ideas to an understanding of the stories people tell about themselves, whether in formal autobiography or in social encounters. She co-edited Acquainted with the Night: psychoanalysis and the poetic imagination (2003). She won the National Poetry Competition in 1986, and a Cholmondeley Award in 2000. Stitching the Dark (Bloodaxe, 2005) includes work from four previous collections: Broken Moon (1987), Changing the Subject (1989), Striking Distance (1994) and Love and Variations (2000), two of these Poetry Book Society Recommendations. Her first three collections were published by OUP and the fourth by Bloodaxe.
