The first book-length critical study of the contemporary British poet, Don Paterson
Eight essays by leading literary critics and writers explore the social, historical and personal dimensions of Paterson's poetry and prose. Situating his work in dialogue with the classical, medieval, early modern, modernist and contemporary voices that inform it, the book considers Paterson as a figure actively negotiating his place within literary history and theory, as well as confronting that history with humour and directness.
