About the Author

John Kerrigan was born and brought up in Liverpool, educated at Oxford, and now teaches at Cambridge. He has published extensively on early modern literature, especially Shakespeare, on Romantic poetry, and on contemporary writing. His edition of Shakespeare's Sonnets and A Lover's Complaint
(1986, often reprinted) was widely acclaimed, and his study of Revenge Tragedy: Aeschylus to Armageddon (1996) won the Truman Capote Award for Literary Criticism. In addition to editions and monographs, he has written numerous articles for the (London) Times Literary Supplement and the London Review
of Books, and poetry reviews for "little" magazines. Internationally prominent, he has lectured throughout Britain, Ireland, Europe and North America.

By A Customer on 9 Sept. 2001
Format: Paperback
A full collection of essays on the underappreciated Roy Fisher. Marjorie Perloff's essay is full of her usual sinewy and striking thought. There is also a complete bibliogrpahy of Fisher's writing.
