Promotional Information

A major new collection from a poet at the apogee of his career. In a series of poems that tell a story, John Fuller contemplates that age-old question of 'Life versus Art'. The verse is both a brilliant pastiche of such great artists as Petrarch, Coleridge and Wallace Stevens, and an exploration of their private lives and craft.

About the Author

Now in his sixties, Fuller is an acclaimed poet, novelist and academic. He has written fifteen collections of poetry of which the last, Ghosts, was shorlisted for the 2005 Whitbread Award for Poetry. He has recently retired as a Fellow of Magdalen College but continues to live in Oxford.


Fuller is a wonderfully skilled craftsman and the grace and elegance of his style is at the service of not only a sharp wit and intelligence, but a great depth of feeling * Sunday Telegraph *
Sustained and deeply felt, it is unafraid to create 'The Space of Joy' * Arts & Book Review *
A work of formal virtuosity * Guardian *
