A poet of politics and nature, fascinated by lichen whose diversity and survival are emblematic of a satisfactory and sustaining order. This Collected Poems spans the three decades of Milne's growth into one of the most distinctive radical poets of his generation. His poetry relates thematically and this Collected adds up to a major demonstration of the place of poetry as witness, critique and prophesy. Poet is a fellow of Corpus Cristi College, Cambridge.

About the Author

Drew Milne is a fellow of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. His work has featured in 'PN Review' and his Collected Poems is forthcoming from Carcanet Press.


`Drew Milne is a formalist par excellence. He is a syllable counter, a shape shifter, and above all he is a sonic machine. His native inclination as a formalist is at once modernist and Marxist. But one could also say, simply, that Milne is a late Romantic lyric-poet with a political imagination. His latest turn to lichen introduces a sense of scale to the vulnerable and tenuous relationship we have to the natural world and gives a plaintive urgency to his song.' - Peter Gizzi; `Beckoning disjunctions and witty deformations shine their torch on tawdry contemporary realia, but lyrical moments and Scottish echoes fill the interstices with pleasing difference.' - Edwin Morgan on Sheet Mettle; `Lyrical social critique becomes a plausible art . . . Milne's rhetoric displays a subtle, internalized argument that draws one to its cause.' - Marjorie Welish on Go Figure
