He was a stage designer, artist, writer, gardener, and an outspoken AIDS and queer rights activist in the United Kingdom and the United States. He is the author of several books, among them Modern Nature, Chroma, and At Your Own Risk, available from University of Minnesota Press.

Reviews

"For some, Jarman was too much of a Renaissance man, aggressively dragging the arts of the painter and poet into his films. These collected scripts, though, show his pure talent; he writes passionately about often bitter things, what he called the pornographic darkness of his work. From his features to experimental Super 8 films, Jarman s theme was always them-and-us, yet behind all the layered symbolism of sexuality and repression, there is compassion and humour." Tobias Jones, "Observer Review"" "For all his anger, Jarman never seems brutalised. He retains his humanity and his good humour. His is a wonderfully garrulous, mercurial, polymathic daemon." --Literary Review "Jarman [is] the sort of troublemaking visionary who one day may be compared with Blake." --John Gill, Time Out "The clarity with which Derek Jarman offered up his life and the living of it, particularly since the epiphany--I can call it nothing less--of his illness was a genius stroke, not only of provocation, but of grace." --Tilda Swinton
