Poetry. Although John Daniel's work was featured in the seminal 23 British Modern Poets (Swallow Press, USA, 1971), no substantial reckoning of his poetry has been forthcoming. MISSING THE BOAT presents poetry that has held many a listening audience and creased them up with recurrent laughter. It celebrates the orality of his poetry, phantasmagoric wit that is the domain of this flaneur of the commonplace.
