Book description
This collection, with a beautiful cover designed by Ian Friend, ranges from the academic to the creative and anecdotal, and is both a festschrift and response to the poet and teacher, showing the awe and gratitude felt by many of his friends and admirers.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 184861490X, Paperback)

In June 2016, J.H. Prynne celebrates his 80th birthday. A major figure in contemporary British poetry, he and his work are here celebrated by friends and admirers, with new poems and essays on his writings. Both a festschrift and a study of a highly original body of work, the collection offers something for all readers of Prynne's poetry. "J.H. Prynne is without doubt the most formidable and accomplished poet in England today, a writer who has single-handedly changed the vocabulary of expression, and who, through his teaching at Cambridge, has re-educated the sensibility of an entire generation of students.'' -Peter Ackroyd (Sunday Times, 3 December 1987)
