Borrowed Landscapes

Length: 118 pages51 minutes


Written by British poet Peter Scupham, this volume’s themes range from the enigmas of prehistory to a wartime childhood and the passing of the Edwardian generation of his parents. Meditating on the history and topography of the poet’s adopted Norfolk, this work is a wonderful expansion of Scupham’s landscapes and histories into his college and National Service years; these poems stand for a whole generation’s experience and for a past that still feeds a dimming sense of England. Beautifully crafted, this collection achieves an engaging balance between the formal and the conversational.
