Product description


"Sprightly, modest verse makes for convivial reading . . . an enjoyable book, the felicitous thoughts of an unostentatiously cultured and observant writer." Times Literary Supplement"

"[Cox is] a poet so wary of the passionate and the rash [he]writes poems in which passion and rashness seem mysteriously present." Times Educational Supplement"

About the Author

Brian Cox (as C.B. Cox) co-edited the controversial Black Papers on Education (1969-77) and chaired the National Curriculum English Working Group (1988-9). His book on National Curriculum English, Cox on Cox (1991), became a best-seller. In 1993 he retired as John Edward Taylor Professor of English Literature at Manchester University, after serving as Dean of the Faculty of Arts (1984-6) and Pro-Vice Chancellor (1987-1991). He has published books of literary criticism, an autobiography, and edited anthologies and collections of essays. He was a founder editor of Critical Quarterly. In retirement he edited a two-volume collection of essays, African Writers, for Scribners, and wrote a second book on the National Curriculum (The Battle for the English Curriculum, 1995). He remains poetry editor of Critical Quarterly.
