Poetry. To a small but vocal group of poetry devotees, J.H. Prynne has long been considered the towering British poet of the late 20th century. Born in Kent, Prynne studied at Cambridge, where he currently works. He has published twenty collections of poems during the period 1968-97, prior to the four collections assembled and reprinted in FURTHERANCE. His works have been translated into many languages, including French, German, and Chinese. This collection follows Poems which collected all of Prynne's previous poems. FURTHERANCE collects "Red D Gypsum," "Pearls That Were," "Triodes," and "Unanswering Rational Shore."
