Explores the difficulties associated with having your heart in Europe and your life in Japan, across the shadowy terrains of a world grown decidedly more at risk, dangerous, and violent. This work contains poetry that celebrates all it can by means of the poet's rhythm, dexterity, and eye for the energized processes of landscape and atmosphere.


Peter Robinson was born in Salford, Lancashire in 1953 and grew up mainly in Liverpool. He has degrees from the universities of York and Cambridge, and from 1989 to 2007 was a Professor of English literature in Japan. He was described as 'the finest poet of his generation' as early as 1983, and has since established an international reputation in many of the fields associated with modern and contemporary poetry. In mid-2007 he took up a Professorship of English and American literature at the University of Reading, and now lives in Reading with his wife and two daughters. His many publications include Poetry, Poets, Readers: Making Things Happen (2002), Selected Poems (2003), the aphorisms and prose-poems Untitled Deeds (2004), and Twentieth Century Poetry: Selves and Situations (2005). In 2006 he published two books of poetry, Ghost Characters (Shoestring) and There are Avenues (Brodie), and two translations, The Greener Meadow: Selected Poems of Luciano Erba (Princeton) and, with Marcus Perryman, Selected Poetry and Prose of Vittorio Sereni (Chicago). The Look of Goodbye, a new full-length collection of poetry will appear from Shearsman in 2008.
