Forty years of poetry are finally gathered, showcasing a voice resonant with erudition and with awe. This new volume introduces two new collections, King Alfred's Book and Report from Nowhere, while older poems give a chronological dimension to Wilmer's output. A generous selection of translations from Hungarian poetry crown the volume.
Clive Wilmer was born in Harrogate in 1945, grew up in London and was educated at King's College, Cambridge. He now teaches English at Cambridge, where he is a Fellow of Sidney Sussex College, a Bye-Fellow of Fitzwilliam College and an Honorary Fellow of Anglia Ruskin University. He has published five Carcanet collections of poetry, as well as one volume with the Worple Press, The Falls (2000). Clive Wilmer is an authority on John Ruskin and his contemporaries, and has edited selections of Ruskin, William Morris and, for Carcanet's Fyfield series, Dante Gabriel Rossetti. In 2009 he was appointed Master of the Guild of St George, the charity founded by Ruskin in 1871. He has edited the essays of Thom Gunn and, in two Carcanet volumes, Donald Davie. With George Gomori, he has translated widely from modern Hungarian poetry, notably the works of Miklos Radnoti and Gyorgy Petri. In 2005 he was awarded the annual Pro Cultura Hungarica Medal for translation by the Hungarian Ministry of Culture. An occasional broadcaster, he fronted BBC Radio 3's Poet of the Month programmes and his interviews are published by Carcanet as Poets Talking.
