Poetry. Edited by Anthony Barnett. This volume brings back into print the complete poems of Veronica Forrest-Thomson (1947-1975), whose work remains a touchstone for those interested in radical poetry in the 1970s. The book contains all of her published collections, plus poems that remained in manuscript, and contains work that has come to light since the publication of the Collected Poems and Translations (Allardyce, Barnett, 1990) as well as a number of corrections to the first edition.

Author City: Glasgow SCO

Veronica Forrest-Thomson (1947-1975) grew up in Glasgow, studied at the Universities of Liverpool and Cambridge, and later taught at the Universities of Leicester and Birmingham. She worked both as a poet and a critical theorist, and her critical study Poetic Artifice: A Theory of Twentieth-Century Poetry was published by Manchester University Press in 1978. Her poetry collections included Identi-kit (1967), the award-winning Language-Games (1971) and the posthumous On the Periphery (1976). Subsequent gatherings of her work include Collected Poems and Translations (1990) and Selected Poems (1999).
